Scott Dougherty, 50, Knoxville
– We could always count on Scott for a laugh. As class clown he had plenty of one-liners and great mugs for the camera. But when it came to working on a healthy lifestyle, he took it as serious business. When this bookkeeper took up running a few years ago, he enjoyed the friendship and encouragement he got from being part of a team. He may have gotten more than he bargained for when that running pastime brought him to our marathon team. He dropped weight and crossed the finish line of the marathon with flying colors - red, in particular. It was his favorite and he pressed the coaching staff for a special-order red team shirt for the occasion.
