Sport and Fitness with Zeke | Meet Conor Delaney
Conor Delaney adroitly juggles being a marathon runner (Boston), CEO of Good Life Financial Advisors and the father of three young children. Delaney shares his remarkable story with Zeke, how he grew up in a family with a poor diet and no understanding of exercise. Delaney tells Zeke that it’s now easier to jump when playing basketball at 170 pounds than it was at 270 pounds. Delany says he played sports at Alvernia but only after college did he put it all together with diet and exercise. He began to run local races with his wife Elizabeth, who inspired him and pushed him. In 2016, with the desire to run his fist marathon, he partnered with a coach and mentor, Ray Piazza, to take him from a 5K hobby runner to an athlete. Delaney tells Zeke that his training consists of running, lifting and biking but a healthy diet is at least 50 percent of his fitness equation. InvestmentNews recently named Delaney as one of its 2017 40 Under 40. Based on accomplishments to date, contributions to the financial advisory industry, leadership and promise, Delaney was chosen from more than 800 nominations.
