26 Oct Want to change your life? Set a goal – and stick to it
To misquote Mao, every journey – even one of this magnitude – starts with a single step. David’s first step was to set himself a goal: first, to run 1km without stopping to walk; then to run 5kms; then to beat his personal best over the same distance, and so on. Before long, he had dropped more than 35kg and was winning competitions.
Here he talks to Seven’s The Daily Edition about his World Marathon Challenge – that’s seven marathons on seven continents in seven days – win, setting two world records in the process.
David’s book Relentless is onsale now.
