In this final episide of the podcast for 2020 I chat with Gerry Duffy from Mullingar in Co. Westmeath. Gerry is a runner, triathlete, motivational speaker, author, teacher and all-round inspiration. Throughout his thirties and forties, he developed a passion for sport; running and triathlon, in particular, resulting in him tackling some epic endurance challenges including running 32 marathons in 32 days (2010) as well as completing a DECA Iron Distance Triathlon (2011) which consisted of swimming 24 miles, cycling, 1,160 miles and running 262 miles.
But the biggest challenge of all was to push completely outside of his comfort zone to overcome a fear of public speaking. He is now one of the most sought after and leading professional motivational speakers in Ireland with his own speaker school.
We chat about facing his fears, stepping up to the challenge, respecting goals, the importance of exercise and mindset and how the pivotal decision to get healthy and fit at the age of 27 was the catalyst to a new life that he could previously only have dreamed of.
