Do you have dreams to seek out more adventure, travel the world, and challenge yourself to get out of your comfort zone, but you’re not sure if it’s possible or even where to start? Then this episode will inspire you to start taking those ideas and make them a reality. My guest is Gavin Boyter, a writer, filmmaker, and long distance “adventure runner,” and author of “Running the Orient,” his story of running over 2300 miles across Europe along the Orient Express. In our conversation, Gavin tells the story of how he made this audacious goal a reality, what it took to run from Paris to Istanbul, and the lessons he learned along the way. If you’re ready to discover how you can have more adventure in your life from running, you won’t want to miss this episode!
