He also held the Guinness World Record for pull-ups completing 4,030 in 17 hours.
But the real reason why David began long-distance running is because he wanted to raise money for Special Operations Warrior Foundation, a non-profit organisation that gives college scholarships and grants to the children of fallen special operations soldiers.
