#21 - 7 Marathons on 7 Continents in 7 days - Scott Coey and his Challenge of a Lifetime

This episode really speaks for itself.  Scott Coey, an Australian City banker living in London England, ran a marathon on every continent in the world in the space of only one week.  The first marathon was in the freezing climate of Antarctica and the last one was in the sunny setting of South Beach. Listen to this episode in full to hear what the full itinerary was for the week.  Having taken part in an ultra marathon before I have felt first hand what consecutive days of running can do to your body.  The added aspect of having to travel long distances is something I just cannot fathom.  Nonetheless Scott did it! Not only did he do it but he smashed it.  The mental strength to be able to do something like that is quite incredible. 

Scott was running for Breast Cancer Haven, a charity that is very close to his heart,  When I was speaking to Scott I could really see how important it was to him.  He stated that even though the week of marathons was tough it was only a small dose of what it is like to go through chemotherapy.  This was one of the driving factors that helped keep him going throughout the week.
