#32 - Miles For MAMA with Darius and Charlie McDonald

October 28, 2020

My guest today is Darius McDonald. Darius owns his own business 100percentfitness where he is a personal trainer and sports massage therapist. He resides in England with his wife and two children. This is Darius' second time coming on the show. In the episode we discuss many topics including the running challenges that Darius and his son Charlie have embarked on during the COVID pandemic. Darius is attempting to complete the LEJOG Virtual Challenge in 6 months. This is an 874 mile run which is the distance from Lands End to John O'Groats in England. He is doing this for MAMA Academy which is a UK charity that helps mothers and midwives prevent stillbirths. His 7-year-old son Charlie is also doing a big run for charity. Charlie is trying to run 100 miles in a year for three different UK charities: A children's hospital, an Alzheimer's foundation, and a homeless shelter.
