Ep 33 - Marcus Runs

Ep 33 - Marcus Runs

The Start Line Girls are back with episode 33, the last in the series of the 'Behind the Podcast' episodes.  This month, our special guest is Marcus Brown (formerly known as Marathon Marcus and now as Marcus_Runs on Instagram!).

Marcus is what we would call an 'Amateur Elite' athlete!  A man of many marathons, he is a co-founder of Black Trail Runners, co-host of BTR podcast 'The Checkpoint' and his own podcast 'A Runners Life'.

Marcus speaks to The Start Line Girls about his life as a runner, activist and someone who constantly kicks himself out of his comfort zone, pushing himself to do the things that he wouldn't otherwise do. There's a lesson for all of us in Marcus' attitude, we hope you will all strive to run a marathon (or at least in your dreams!) soon!

We'd love to hear from you, so please follow us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook by searching for @thestartlinepod.  You can also follow the show on your favourite podcast provider or at our website thestartlinepod.com (where you can also get your hands on some TSL merch!).  We'd also love to stay in touch, so don't forget to subscribe to our email list so that we can notify you when the latest episode is coming out!
