We are back with a special episode in this week’s Digible Dudes podcast. David Staley, President and Co-Founder, Nicole Staley; Co-Founder Chief Experience Officer, and Reid Wicoff; CEO and Co-Founder at Digible are here to talk about David’s recent event when he ran for Guinness Book of World Records for running the fastest 100 miles on a treadmill. Throughout the episode, we dive into the experience David had, the psychological impacts, David’s interest in doing something extraordinary, getting back on track, and more.
Starting the conversation, David dives into his recent experience on his 100-mile run attempt and talks about how people should do the things that they want to because it’s okay if you fail and can start over. Joining the conversation, Reid shares his attitude of how people should not let their pride or dignity hurt their health.
David shares what he learned from the experience, saying how he expected to feel that his pride was falling, but in the end, it didn’t, and it was just like before. David then dives into the time of his first try back in 2015, how he wanted to do something extraordinary and prove to himself that he could do something special.
David shares how he gets into recovering his body after the event. He shares how he was sleeping, how he managed his diet, how his body reacted in the meantime, and how he intends to get back the eight pounds he lost.
Wrapping up the conversation, Nicole and David both talk about being part of a supportive community and what it means to be a part of a community like that.
