I’m your host Chris Desmond and this is episode 16. I’m having a chat today with Paul Petch for Good People Run among other things. This is how I first came across Paul and wanted to have a chat to him about it.  Good People Run is A social enterprise, articles, stories, people, events, photography, creativity & running centric news - GPR is your personal & positive stoke for modern running life & culture. GPR is not-for-profit & inspires people to live healthier lifestyles through running.

Now you might not believe it but this chat is the first conversation that Paul and I have ever had. The reason you might not believe it is because Paul is very open about some of the challenges he has faced along his journey. After I got finished chatting with Paul I was buzzing because so much of what he talked about resonated with why I started the podcast. We chat about a lot of the things that I know I am often so uncomfortable sharing.

I took a lot out of this conversation. I think Paul got a bit out of it too as I heard him describe it on his podcast as a free hour long therapy session. Hopefully you guys enjoy it as much as I did participating in it. Thanks for taking some time out of you busy schedules to get uncomfortable with me and Paul.

Other than when I'm asleep, the odd moment when I'm 'in the zone' whilst running or adventuring on my own, and occasionally when eating, I'm pretty much uncomfortable. Fortunately when you're training for an ultra-marathon life is Run Eat Sleep Repeat :-D Joking aside whilst this is obviously less than ideal I'm OK with that, it's just the way I'm wired, I'm too curious, ideal and moralistic, trying to find my place in society and the world and work out how to make a living that allows me to thrive...
