Inspiring Interviews- Double Amputee Marathon World Record Holder Marko Cheseto
In today's episode, we talk with Marko Cheseto. Marko's story is pretty crazy and unbelievable. Marko is a Kenyan born world record holder in the Marathon. But his journey to success is quite different than any other Kenyan Marathoner. Marko came to the US sight unseen in 2008 on a running scholarship to the University of Alaska. And yes, he had no idea what snow was. He would find success battling competitors on the track, but it was off the track where he was fighting a much more serious opponent. His struggle with mental health drove him to overdose on his antidepressants and go for one last run. When he miraculously emerged from the snow after three nights, he somehow managed to stumble to a hotel for help. His life changed both physically and mentally that day, and he would say for the better. Ten years of dedication, struggle, and learning to walk and run again on prosthetics, he has emerged as the fastest man to run 26.2 miles without legs. Marko's story is unbelievably inspiring and shines a light on the issue of mental health in today's society. We are delighted and honored to have Marko share his journey and story with us today.

Legendary stories from a hero in running
I have been a fan of Jeff Galloway since I started running in 1985. This podcast is a treasure. What a treat to hear these stories as if we are out on a long run together. I am forever thankful for the run-walk-run method that Jeff developed and I train with his customized coaching program. Thanks for sharing your memories and experience with us! Keep ‘em coming!
Jeff is an inspiring mentor
Jeff and his son getting to do this is an absolutely wonderful thing. What a bonding experience it must be! Jeff has helped me so much since I discovered running so late in life. Hearing his story is motivating and inspiring. I’m so glad this is available. Keep the episodes coming!
Great Respect & Admiration
I’m a big fan of JG and believe I wouldn’t still be running if it weren’t for Run/Walk/Run. Sadly I’m not a fan of this podcast. JG appears to be reading his story to us, and that’s ok, if you want someone to read you a story. I was hoping for conversation and the telling of stories, not a prepared script. I’ve read many of Jeff’s books. All are wonderful. If he put these stories in a book I’d love to read them as well. But if I want someone to read me a story I’ll get Audible. If you want to hear more about his background you definitely might like this podcast. It just isn’t what I like to listen to.
