The recent ABC reality series, “Fat March,” sent 12 who shared the common goal of losing weight on a 570-mile walk, crossing through nine states, beginning at the starting line for the Boston Marathon and ending in Washington, D.C. Although their main goal of shedding unwanted pounds and getting fit, there was an extra initiative, a prize pool of $1.2 million to split between the team that crossed the finish line first.
One of the walkers, Wendy Alane Wright, hails from La Cañada. She and her husband, James Smith, own a construction company, Plan-Spec. Wright is also a singer with a new CD titled “As I Am,” in stores and online now.
“I love working the construction business in the daytime, but at night is when I sing,” said Wright. She also works as a back-up singer for other artists including Wayne Brady.
