Ep 73 World Marathon Challenge Finisher Michael Gabriel

Running a marathon is hard. Running 7 marathons in 7 days sounds nearly impossible. Now add the fact that each of these marathons will take place on a different continent, and you have the World Marathon Challenge

In this special episode of the Rise and Run podcast, we chat with our friend, Michael Gabriel (@runthesmallworld), to discuss his experiences while completing this amazing challenge. A few of the topics discussed include:

  • Running at the south pole in -20 F wind chills
  • Transportation problems leaving South Africa
  • Clearing customs in Australia while dressed as a kangaroo
  • Living in an airplane for most of the week
  • The hospitality of the host countries
  • Friendships made during the journey
  • The exhilaration of finishing marathon #7 in Miami

During the interview, Michael talked about the She’s the First t-shirts he wore after every event and about his affiliation with this highly worthwhile organization. For more information or to make a donation on Michael’s behalf, click this link: She’s The First.
