By delving back into interviews with author Paul Bruno and Director Head of Design for Jeep, along with a new interview with Randall Withrow of the U.S. Veterans Memorial Museum (which houses an impressive collection of Jeeps used in the U.S. military, including the oldest surviving Jeep, the Ford Pygmy), Robert unpacks the underdog story of where Jeep came from and where it's going.

Mark Allen, The Greatest Endurance Athlete of All Time: How To Quiet The Racing Mind

The Extra Mile - The Official Charity Miles Podcast

Mark Allen is a legend. ESPN named him the Greatest Endurance Athlete of All Time. 6X winner of the Ironman World Championships in Kona. First ever winner of the Triathlon World Championships. Epic 21-race winning streak, at all distances, the longest in triathlon history But it wasn't just Mark's victories that made him special. Mark was and is known for his mental game and spirituality. Which is something that we dive into during this interview: How to quiet the racing mind. This interview is especially fitting because May is Mental Health Month. We also just announced our newest member of the Charity Miles family, Active Minds. Active Minds is one of the premier mental health charities in the world.  It was started by Alison Malmon, 18 years ago, when she lost her brother, Brian to suicide. Alison recognized that Brian’s story is the story of thousands of people who suffer in silence; who, despite their large numbers, think they are totally alone.  Wanting to combat the stigma around mental illness, Alison started a student group at the University of Pennsylvania, where she was a student. Active Minds has since grown to more than 800 college campuses, directly reaching close to 600,000 students each year through campus awareness campaigns, events, advocacy, outreach and more.  Active Minds has also grown outside of the college campus with its newly launched, Active Minds @Work program to help companies create a healthy mental health culture in the workplace. As I've written and spoken about before, I have personally struggled with anxiety and depression-- and in many ways, still do.  I've also heard from many in our community on this topic. So I know this is something many of you care deeply about too. So please help me welcome Active Minds to the Charity Miles family by doing some Charity Miles for them today. Also, one more quick note—this interview is sponsored by our great partners at Hope Foods.  As you all likely know by now, Hope Foods makes a variety of delicious Cashew & Almond Dips, Hummus, and Guacamole that feature fresh ingredients and bold flavors to elevate the wholesomeness of your favorite dishes and snacks. Like us, Hope is also deeply committed to mental health.  They aspire to manifest hope by providing food and tools that support your physical and mental well-being, and even have an entire section of their website dedicated to mental health resources.  If you’d like to check that out, please visit hopefoods.com/havehope. So big thanks to Hope Foods.  And a big welcome to Active Minds.  Now without any further ado, turn up your volume and turn on your charity miles and come along for the walk or run with me and Mark Allen, the greatest endurance athlete of all time.    >> If you'd like to learn more about Mark, visit his site here.

‘No one enjoys playing in a bow tie’ - Mark Allen on snooker's need to modernise

The Break: The Eurosport snooker podcast

Mark Allen claims no snooker player wants to play in a waistcoat and bow tie as he urged the sport to catch up if it wanted a slice of the youth audience. Professional snooker typically has a strict dress code – smart trousers and shoes, plus a long-sleeved shirt, waistcoat and bow tie – although it has been relaxed for some events, with the latter two items ditched for the Home Nations series. World number one Judd Trump has previously suggested the sport is "stuck in a rut" and said one solution would be to allow players greater freedom in the clothing department. The Break is presented by Andy Goldstein and produced by Ola Fisayo.

Mark Allen, Discusses his Boxing and MMA Career, and Overcoming his Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

Enter the Lionheart

Lawrence is joined by his former training partner and teammate, Mark Allen. We reminisce about some of our favorite memories from our decade plus in the combat sports world, and how he is dealing with his Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) which he examines in depth, in his fantastic (hilarious, but also gritty, and powerful) new book: “Based on a True, Traumatic, Brain History: A Short Memoir”.  Mark is truly “uncommon, amongst uncommon men” and just as I was inspired by his tenacity and fighting spirit when we were gym buddies and gym competitors, I am today inspired by his always positive and pragmatic approach to his “new normal”, and his constant intellectual curiosity. He never allows any self-pity and maintains a growth mindset, along with his strict athlete lifestyle of fasting, constant growth, and commitment to get the most out of this life, regardless of his adversities. It is in hope that Mark’s book and wisdom will encourage the new generation of fighters to train smarter, and not just harder.  Through it all, neither of us would change those years and the honor of being Teddy Roosevelt’s “Man in the Arena”. His new book is available on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Based-True-Traumatic-Brain-History/dp/1796097322
