About the episode:

Today’s episode is the first in our series on the art of the Streak. Marcus Smith is one of my former clients who will be telling the story about how he went from lying on the side of the road in the middle of the desert with 7 broken ribs, a shattered scapula, and a punctured lung to running 30 marathons in 30 days within an 8-month period.

This story begins on the side of the road in the middle of the desert. Marcus and I were working together while he was putting in 8-hour training rides a few days per week in preparation for a 1000km bike race through Oman.

Just a few weeks out from the event, I get an email from Marcus letting me know that he was in a hospital bed after being hit by a truck and my heart sank knowing how much work this man had already put in.
