My guest on today’s show is endurance adventurer Luke Tyburski.  I first came across Luke in a couple of podcasts Ilisten to, saw that he also based in London, and connected with himto do this show.  Luke’s story is amazing and inspiring. Last year, Luke devised, designed, and completed “The Ultimate Triathlon” – a 2000 km adventure from Morocco to Monaco thatinvolved: 1) swimming the Strait of Gibraltar (equal to 400 laps ofa 50m pool), 2) cycling 1,300 kms across the Spanish coast intoFrance (equivalent to the entire length of Britain), and 3) running 14 marathons to Monaco – all done in just 12 days!  

However, this is not just a story of someone who did something epic.  Luke’s approach is a beautiful example of how to take risks, even when things don’t fully work out – as is the case inhis efforts to turn from struggling journeyman footballer tofull-blown professional.

We also discuss his battle with depression.  This is a very real, authentic conversation about this illness. If you or anyoneyou know is struggling with depression, I urge you to have a listento the first 30-40 minutes of this show, as Luke provides a number of wonderful insights. 

From there, we go on to discuss Luke’s training and completion of the Marathon des Sables (MDS) – a great part of the conversation when we tackle the nature of motivation, authenticity, and living life. 

We then get into a number of Luke’s further adventures, leading to the Ultimate Triathlon. 

I thought the conversation was pure gold.  We cover, among many other things:

•Taking risks in life
•Battling depression
•Making sacrifices
•Training for, and running the Marathon des Sables (http://www.marathondessables.co.uk/)
•The Brutal Extreme Triathlon (http://www.britishtriathlon.org/take-part/events/detail/the-brutal-extreme-triathlon-_1495)
•The Mount Everest Ultra Marathon
•The Ultimate Triathlon, including:
•The resilience of the body and mind;
•Logistical challenges;
•Dealing with injuries;
•Superfoods
•And much more!
