Episode 26 was a blast! I met Joel in August when he came to speak at our company and share the journey of the past 9 years and how this whole thing came together. It’s an incredible story of perseverance, patience, grit, and a little luck. We go in depth on a variety of topics and he shares a lot of great insight on his daily routines and how he prepares for these long races.
Joel Runyon is an athlete and entrepreneur. He is the founder of IMPOSSIBLE – a company dedicated to helping people push their limits and do impossible things.
In 2017, he became the youngest person in the world to run 7 ultra marathons on 7 continents. Along the way, he raised $192,000 for Pencils of Promise and built 7 schools.
He is very bad at saying “no” to a challenge.
