Episode Info:

I try to find words and concepts that encapsulate my guests, what they are about, and what we cover in each episode. In thinking about this one, the word that kept coming back to me was “mindset”. My guest is ultra endurance athlete Chris Solarz. Chris has set nine world records, including the total combined time for marathons on all seven continents, number of stairs climbed in 12 days, fastest time to visit all 468 stations in the New York City subway system, and more. He has completed hundreds of marathons, the Ultraman triathlon, the Epic 5 challenge, and recently raced the Deca Man, 10 Ironman distance triathlons in 10 days.

So, who is this guy? Is he some type of professional ultra endurance athlete? Actually, no. Chris is married, a father of three and a Managing Director at a hedge fund. This is where the concept of mindset comes in. Chris has an incredible way of prioritising and integrating family, his passion for endurance sport, and his career. Of course, this isn’t easy, as you will hear. However, there is a lot we can take away from the mindset that Chris has developed and apply it to any aspect of life.

We get into that. Chris talks about his background, how he got into running and ultra endurance events, some of the world records he has set and more. However, this isn’t a conversation about endurance training. It is about motivation, family, overcoming obstacles, managing time, prioritising, decision-making, and much more.

I feel very privileged to bring this one to you. Chris is very authentic and insightful. I think you’ll love it.
