#96 How This Sporting Event Could Change Your Life with Michael Lemmel
Play episode · 1 hr 35 min

Can a sporting event really change the world? It might sound crazy, but with the right ingredients, I think it can.

My guest on this week’s podcast is Michael Lemmel, co-founder of Swimrun, a sporting experience that’s taken the world by storm. What began as a drunken bet between friends, to swim and run between islands off Sweden, evolved into an organised endurance event and now an eco-conscious, global phenomenon, attracting people of all ages and abilities.

You run in your wetsuit, swim in your shoes and complete a series of short swims and trail runs, all with a partner. I did my first Swimrun in Devon last summer, and myself and my nine-year-old son are now total converts. Michael and I chatted just before our third event, in Malta, and I was keen to find out why he thinks it’s such a transformative experience.

But this week’s episode is definitely not just for outdoor sports enthusiasts – it’s about the power of nature, the joy of coming together with others. It’s about stepping outside of your comfort zone, becoming a better person – and, yes, making the world a better place.

The Hug | Part 1
Today, we’re doing something we’ve never done before. We’re about to head into a week like never before in the US and, well, around the world. And we kinda wanted to wrap it, and you, with one big, beautiful, audio hug that reminds us all, people are good, they can be kind, even to total strangers, in ways we never imagined. So, we’ve created a two-part series for you we’re calling The Hug, where we’re sharing a bunch of heartwarming stories, told by friends of the pod and some past guests who, now that I think about it, are friends now, too. Each story shares a moment or experience where a little bit of kindness, a little bit of sweetness and, just maybe, a little bit of lightness and laughter, touched their lives, and reminded them how good people can be. I feel like we all need a little of that right now.  So, today is part one of The Hug, the first 6 stories for you. We’ll air part 2 next week, right after the election with the intention of wrapping us all in the arms of stories that remind us of our shared humanity at a time we need it most. So, sit back and enjoy these stories in part one of The Hug.  You can find our storytellers at: Gabra Zackman: Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/audiobookgoddess/) Rick Charlie: Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/rick.charlie) Rebekah Taussig: Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/sitting_pretty/) Neil Pasricha: Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/neilpasricha/) Jeff Harry: Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/jeffharryplays/) Susan Piver: Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/susan.piver/) Check out offerings & partners:  Nutrafol: Nutrafol.com - code GOODLIFE Azlo: Azlo.com/GOODLIFE.
