Episode 22: Duathlete living in Dubai ft. Kevin Bradford
Welcome back to a new episode of The Stephen Read Podcast. On this episode we take things global!! Fewer than 8 hours after Kevin messaged me out of the blue and suggested a life swap I had booked tickets to Dubai and planned to record this podcast. Taking the leap of faith and travelling 7 hours on a plane to meet a complete stranger certainly paid off. Not only did we capture a great conversation but I would happily call Kevin a friend. In our conversation we find out all about his cycling/running career and learning what it takes to reach his level as a duathlete. We talk about what it's like to live and work in Dubai and Iraq as well as how he ended up there in the first place. I hope you enjoy listening to this as I thoroughly enjoyed recording it!
