Description

Andy Vernon, professional athlete for ON Running and Protocol Nutrition, is one of Great Britain's most decorated athletes with medals at National, British, European and World level over track, road and cross country. On the podcast we talk about Vernon's career, how he got into running all the way to the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. He shares his highs and lows with us and shows us that even though he may be a top level athlete even the top athletes can be plagued with injuries and have to fight to get back to elite level fitness to compete for their country and also sometimes sacrificing his health to earn a living for his family. We talk about when Vernon, at the time was a 13m 23s 5000m and 10,000m 27m52s runner, had 4 jobs to make ends meet so he could still fulfil his ambition of competing for Great Britain and not retiring prematurely. This is a great honest account of the struggles that elite athletes go through to keep their dream alive.
