Interview with Tim Borland

*[Audio Content Available For Members Only. Click Here to Join Now]

Tim ran 63 marathons in 63 days to bring awarness to a rare and fatal children’s disease called Ataxia Telangiectasia (A-T).

His amazing journey is chronicled in a film called “FEAT Movie.”

Tim ran a full 26.2 miles each day while pushing a mobility-jogging stroller for 63 days in 63 different communities across the U.S.

Check out Tim’s video at the bottom of this post.


Tim’s story is a tribute to the enduring power of the human spirit. He not only talks about his challenge of running a marathon 63 days in a row (he hit the wall on day 3), but also the challenge of the families dealing with AT.

In this interview Tim will encourage you to “maximize the dash”. He believes that ordinary people can do extraordinary things if they tap into their passions and dream big.

    By the way . . .

    “Maximizing the Dash” means to make the most out of life. The dash is the small mark between the date of birth and date of death on your tombstone.

    How much life meaning can you fit into the dash?

    Hi Angie and Trevor,
    I sure hope you both had wonderful success in Little Rock!
    I wanted to let you both know how much you have helped me with my training. Last April I started running, did several races including a half marathon. I did it but didn’t feel good about my accomplishments.
    Your podcastsntaught me that mental toughness is required and must be an important part of the training. Before I understood this, and I meet truly understood, accepted and believed this, I was always beating myself up for not being enough and most importantly not being a runner.
    I found your podcast in December 2010 and my mental toughhness has improved tremendously in the first 3 months of this year. It was the mental toughness that got me through two tough runs this weekend. A year ago I would have seen the bad in these runs. Now they are proof that I am a runner and my mind and body are stronger because I run.
    Many thanks and deepest regards,
    Kim

      Hi Kim. You’ve made great progress in your running journey in the last year. I’m so proud of you! I’m glad that you’re starting to develop the mental toughness and confidence to see yourself as a runner. Keep up the wonderful work!
