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.”
