Episode 102 – Andy Roberts
You know how we put so much thought and effort into what we wear for our big races. We make sure we have clothes that will not chafe, that we have our fastest shoes, that we are going to be comfortable in what we are wearing.
OK, now imagine scrapping all of that and deciding to go run a marathon with face paint and wrapped head to toe in bandages.
And having so much fun, that you go back and do it again, but this time with badminton shoes and rackets.
That’s what my guest Andy Roberts did. Andy is a runner from England. Last year, he snagged a Guinness World Record by becoming the fastest person to run a marathon dressed as a mummy. That was at the London Marathon. When he got into London again this year, he went for another Guinness World Record and became the fastest person to run a marathon as a badminton player.
So Andy is now a two-time Guinness World Record holder and in this episode, the two of us wonder if he can get a Guinness World Record for holding the most Guinness World Records.
Andy started running about six years ago and has fallen in love with the sport. Marathons, ultras, he’s done it all. He was so much fun to talk to and his world record attempt stories are hilarious.
