Today on the podcast:

Marcus Smith is an extreme athlete and coach, entrepreneur and motivational speaker. 

As a show fan favourite, lolong-termisteners will be familiar with him from episodes 141 Find Your Everest and Showing No Weakness with Marcus Smith, Episode 207 Marcus Smith – The Intensive Care Unit To Running 30 Marathons In 30 Consecutive Days (which is still one of my all-time personal favourites) and most recently episode 253 on Making Yourself Mentally Tougher and Building The Ultra-mindset.

He is also the founder of Inner Fight in Dubai and the host of the great podcast by the same name.
