I met Paul Watts when running my first marathon last November.
He is an inspiration. He is blind and has run 340 marathons when we
recorded the podcast end of last year. He also carried the Olympic
torch in 2012.
So this is a story of personal success. It is for runners and
anyone interested in running or is looking for an inspiration and
motivation to run a bit more than you currently do. For most of the
population a marathon is a stretch, and Paul has done 340 being
blind. What an amazing achievement.
We speak about our running experience, share a good story and
get some advice on how to stay fit; he tells us about how he
finished an Ultra Marathon with a broken wrist and how it works
having a ‘guided runner’.
Enjoy this episode, a different angle, but a bigger
inspiration than most!
His motto is ’never say never" - if you say you can’t, then
you talk yourself into that you can’t. "I wanted to do one marathon
and I am still going."
