Today on the podcast:
Tom has been one of my biggest influences over the past year. After battling cancer and changing the way he saw the world; he has since gone on to become one of Dubai’s leading entrepreneurs, a successful ultra marathon runner and is constantly pushing the boundaries on his physical and mental limitations. Alongside our mutual friend Marcus Smith (Episode 141), Tom’s advice and support is one of the main reasons I was able to finish the 250km run through the Sahara Desert in April.
We talk everything from the mindset developed through running and nutrition for half or full marathons to the difference between real and perceived problems and the importance of the right romantic relationship for long-term success. I got so much from this interview. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed recording it.
