My guest today Michael Wardian has long been on my list of athletes I've wanted to converse with because he very well might be the new Most Interesting Man In The World. Beyond his running resume and achievements - of which there are many including running 7 marathons in 7 continents in 7 days (all under 3 hours), being the last man standing at the Quarantine Backyard Ultra during the Covid shutdowns (260+ miles in over 63 hours) and multiple world records...he also manages to carry a full-time job, a wife, 2 sons and multiple different hobbies and passions outside of endurance sports. Today, we attempt to unpack as much of it that we can, find out how he recovers so quick, how to get out of low moments during races, who he enjoys competing against and what's exactly in store for what may be his biggest endurance feat yet: running across America this May 1st from the Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean in a project called "Running Home". All to raise money for clean water projects to underdeveloped countries. + To Donate: https://bit.ly/3Mqx00W + YouTube Interview: https://youtu.be/aQu__82yDdg
