#142 - Kate Jayden, world record holder, & endurance athlete tells her story about neurodiversity
Play • 1 hr 14 min

In episode 142, I speak with British endurance athlete Kate Jayden who raised more than £35,000 for Trussell Trust, The Hygiene Bank and The Refugee Council. And in the process she achieved the Guinness World Record for completing the most marathons in consecutive days, running 106 total marathons. Whilst this was never the aim, we explore why she started this challenge.

Although this is a running podcast, most of the podcast we don’t actually talk about running. We explore our neurodiverse experiences living in a neurotypical world. This is one of my favourite podcast conversations that I’ve had. As it shines a light on things that we typically don’t speak about in the running community.

Following the 106 challenge a MRI scan discovered that Kate completed most of the challenge with a fractured knee. We touched upon it in the conversation, but I wish Kate the very best in the recovery process, and thank her for speaking so openly in this conversation.
