Michael Clarke: My Brother.

Have you ever broken your foot in the middle of a race and still finished?  Well, my next guest has.  In this week's episode we speak with Michael Clarke.  Michael is my brother and the reason I began running in the first place.  He ran track in high school and college and we discuss the grueling race schedule these young kids have to endure.  We discuss pain and whether running a 5 hour marathon is harder than running a 2 hour marathon. 

Kevin Duffy

Kevin is an Ironman athlete, plant based connoisseur, endurance philosopher and a Fire Fighter in Yonkers, NY.  We explore why Kevin loves training for the hardest one day endurance event in the world and how giving up meat in all its forms has led to a leaner, stronger, faster athlete.  Ever wonder whether plant based eaters get hangovers?  Well wonder no more as Kevin and I delve into the plant based rabbit hole.  

Visit Kevin on Instagram (@Fire_and_Ironman) and learn more about how a vegan plant based diet could benefit you.
