As the regular work day begins for most people on April 17, Conor Delaney, financial advisor and CEO of The Good Life Companies, will be making his way to the starting line of the 121st Boston Marathon.

He hopes to finish this, his first marathon, in about three hours and 20 minutes.

After watching both of his parents die young, partially because of bad health habits, Delaney always has defined himself as an athlete, but last year he decided to enter the ranks of elite athletes by qualifying for the Boston Marathon and finishing in a respectable time.

“I would be a hypocrite if I did not make good decisions in business, as well as outside business,” says Delaney, who ran 23 miles the morning he did this interview. He trains six days a week, doing different kinds of workouts each day.
