Episode 77 is an interview with Tristan Miller. In 2010, Melbourne man Tristan entered the record books when he became the first person to complete 52 marathons in 52 weeks.
He had sold virtually everything he owned to fund his $120,000, 42-country, globe-trotting marathon, which included all seven continents. Along the way, he clocked up more than 260,000 kilometres in the air and raised funds for charities UNICEF and Facing Africa.
During his courageous - or insane, depending on your point of view - and epic journey, Tristan ran in all the major international marathons, including New York, London, Berlin and Tokyo and also found himself in Rwanda, Mongolia, Siberia, Morocco and Northern Island, Cuba and the Cayman Islands, to name just a few. He even ran across the frozen fields of Antarctica.
Tristan had started running six years earlier following a divorce. He found that running long distances gave him a sense of achievement and the courage to try other things he had never previously dreamed of doing. The catalyst came in 2009 when his employer, Google, closed its Melbourne office during the global financial crisis. With no attachments, he decided to go and see the world. This interview is this story.
