Richard Wright — Speaker, Author, Endurance Athlete

Lessons in how to survive and thrive uncertainty and adversity

Imagine what it takes to run 42 km. A full marathon.
Now, imagine doing so after cycling non-stop for 180 km.
Now, imagine doing both after a 3.8 km swim.

This is the journey every aspiring endurance triathlete must take to earn the coveted moniker of Ironman.

Now, imagine doing all of that, in record time, with stage 4 brain cancer.

In this episode, the first of three in a series with Richard Wright, a sought-after speaker, author, endurance athlete and three-time cancer survivor, we talk about what it takes to push the boundaries of our physical and mental capability to achieve apparently impossible feats, even when all the odds are against us.

We talk about this not just in terms of Richard's story, or the decisions we must make every day to progress and achieve, but also critically in terms of the current state of the world - a world oppressed by the fear and uncertainty of a global COVID-19 pandemic.
