You Can Run a marathon too – A Podcast

You Can Run a marathon too if you put your mind to it.

We have all heard words to the effect of “you can do anything if you put your mind to it”,  and in this podcast, I speak to a local Roscommon man Tom who has now completed 3 marathons, the most recent being the 2022 Dublin City marathon and our paths crossed when I treated Tom for some not uncommon injuries picked up by him along the way.

The podcast should be of interest to lots of you out there to reinforce self-belief. 

Tom’s motivation was to get fit and lose weight, he tells us about his aha moment and indeed as he explains how losing 4 stone pretty quickly aided motivation.

He discusses how training cleared his mind and removed stress.

In this podcast, a regular guy just like you and me discusses his journey and may help you to follow his path.
