KUSA - Trevor Barron just made it to the Olympics in London as a race walker in 2012.

On Sunday, 9NEWS Reporter Vida Urbonas spoke with Trevor to learn more about his journey.

Seven years ago, he had brain surgery to take out a piece of his brain. Since then his seizures have stopped.

This spring, he wanted to take some time off from race walking so he decided to run a marathon.

In just ten weeks Barron trained for the Colfax Marathon.

In the race, he came in fourth place overall.

Barron ran the marathon in honor of the Epilepsy Foundation.

Barron hopes his story will help others who are also going through challenges.

"You can do amazing things and even achieve your goals with Epilepsy," said Barron.

Strides for Epilepsy 5k race and community celebration is Sunday, June 9 from 8:30 p.m. to12 p.m. at Denver's City Park.
