Show Notes

‘I used to do a lot of endurance sports, the long-distance running and triathlons, Iron Man’s and things like that and what I realised is I got really good at running a long way, running away. So, I was using running and those endurance sports as a way to distract myself from the things I actually needed to focus on in my life. And, at the time, I was using that hustle, that drive, that competitive spirit, and taking on immense challenges as a way to feel I was being productive, but I was actually being productive and achieving things in parts of my life that weren’t fulfilling.’ ~ Leigh Stalker
