NWP: Mindset Is Built From Experiences Unlocked From Big Attempts Nomad Wolf Podcast

    • Fitness

In this episode of NomadWolf, we are joined with mountain and ultra runner, John Kelly. Most known for being 1 of the only 15 finishers of the Barkley Marathons, John has been quite busy taking on the Fell Running scene in the UK where he currently resides.

We cover the attempts that led to his success at the Barkley as well as the experiences that were necessary for him to pull of his latest accomplishment called the Grand Round. The Grand Round is comprised of 3 famous Fell Running rounds - the Bob Graham in the UK, the Paddy Buckley in Wales, and the Charlie Ramsay in Scotland. This effort was done in one continuous effort where John also cycled to each round and became the first and only person to complete this effort in 130 hours 43 minutes.

Aside from just his projects in running, John has a growing family and is also a CTO for a startup he co-founded called Envelop Risk. We chat about some of the things he's focusing on building at his company as well as some lessons he's been able to take from endurance sports and apply to entrepreneurship. John also shares his main secret on how he manages to train while taking care of a family with kids and a growing company. Hint, he doesn't rely on gas.

This chat with John was incredibly insightful and you can really tell from John's voice that he has been through it all. We're excited to see where he's going to tackle next. But in the meantime, we hope you find something valuable in this episode! Enjoy!
