Radio Headspace #15 - Everyday heroes

Georgie Okell

This week I’m very excited to be talking to two people who have inspired millions of everyday athletes and everyday heroes all around the world. They are ultra athlete, author and one of the world’s fittest men Rich Roll, and writer and journalist Chris McDougall, author of the now world famous Born to Run, and the soon to come Natural Born Heroes.

If you want to read more about Rich Roll, check out his site and his Headspacer of the Month feature.

Chris McDougall changed the face of running with his first book, Born to Run, as has since gone on to explore the human propensity to be good at other surprising endeavours like obstacle courses, mud running and parkour in his follow up Natural Born Heroes. The Natural Born Heroes tour is ongoing now, and Born to Run is currently being turned into a feature film featuring Matthew McConaughey.

As always, you can join the conversation on Twitter @headspace or drop us an email to radio@headspace.com.
