Ben Davies lives in the United Kingdom and always loves a running adventure. Before he was a runner, Ben took a job at a running store and was embarrassed for not knowing anything about running. He learned more and more about running from the patrons of the store and has since run more than 50 races 26.2 miles or longer. Ben’s love for running and trail running quickly progressed from a half marathon to ultra marathons and he has traveled around the world to take part in races, including finishing nine 100-milers. He shares lessons learned from races he was unable to finish and tells us about memories from his favorite events. Ben also shares how running has helped him with his mental health and advises runners to never shy away from races that might appear to be more challenging. Ben was introduced to the Runified Podcast by Lindsey Brown from episode 71. We also share an update from Iain Nelson who was on episode 66.
