Growing together through curious conversations


Kirk Hardwick - The Ultra Runner

In this episode, I get curious with ultra-runner, Kirk Hardwick.

Kirk believes that we are all born to run, and argues, you don’t have to be superhuman to be able to run 100 plus miles over 24 hours. All it takes is commitment, determination and drive. He says the word impossible is overused and is done so in a way that limits our capacity to be our best.

Kirk says the allure of running is the ability to find ourselves and to re-discover what we are meant to do. He describes how running many miles can be tough, but it’s in those tough moments that bring us the greatest joy and helps us build resilience we all need.

Kirk is passionate about health and well-being; he believes that well-being is not one dimensional and that we should all build holistic component parts into our lives.

Delayed gratification, seeing his family smile with pride and inspiring others are his greatest motivators.

Kirk shares the following two incredible quotes:

“We don’t stop playing because we get old, we get old because we stop playing”. George Bernard Shaw

We aren’t good at what we do occasionally, were good at what we do consistently (Author unknown)
