Run with Fitpage

Jul 6 2023 • 51 mins

In this inspiring episode of our podcast, we had the privilege of hosting Patrick Martin, a remarkable individual who embraced the world of running later in life. Vikas and Patrick talk about how to run fast, the importance of consistency, and a lot more.

At the age of 42, Patrick achieved an incredible feat by completing the London Marathon in a remarkable time of 2:24:31, securing the 33rd position. What makes his journey even more impressive is the fact that he had only been running for three and a half years prior to this achievement. As a guest, Patrick shared his passion for running, his training routine, and the challenges he faced along the way. He emphasizes the importance of consistency and provides valuable insights on balancing family, social life, and work commitments with running. Patrick's transformative experience with running has not only impacted him physically but also mentally, and he now seeks to inspire others to pursue their own goals within the sport.
