About This Episode

After a sporting injury, Steven Brydon abandoned his once healthy lifestyle and meandered into middle life. For years he celebrated the achievements of others until, inspired and determined to turn his life around, Steven laced on a long-forgotten pair of running shoes and exercised for the first time in seven years. Steven had no idea his steps would lead him to a 250-kilometre ultra marathon across the Sahara. His odyssey became more about a life changing personal transformation than self-improvement.

In this interview we talk about:

– His background and sporting history.
– Excuses for a sedentary lifestyle and what got him back off the couch.
– Why he entered the Sahara Race and how it changed his life.
– His book “The Breath of Ghosts”.
