36. Ultra-endurance, career changes and world records - Sean Conway

Read more

Sean changed tack from having a normal job to breaking endurance world records and writing books for a living. In this episode he tells us how.

When he was young Sean had an ambition to travel the world working as a photographer, he didn’t quite achieve his aim, and after 10 years and reaching the age of 30, he was working in the UK and specialising in school portraits. Whilst he was doing well professionally, there was something missing.

Sean made a huge career change, whilst trying to work out how to fund a life of travel, he decided he needed to break world records in order to get sponsored.

He set his sights on achieving a world’s first, worlds furthest and world’s fastest in various disciplines.

Worlds first – swam the length of Britain, World’s furthest – longest triathlon, world’s fastest – cycling across Europe from Portugal’s most westerly point in Portugal to the most easterly point in Russia.

This is a fantastic story about pursuing passion.

Read more

Sean Conway is an endurance athlete and adventurer, the first and only man in history to cycle, swim and run the length of Britain. He’s also cycled around the world, crossed Europe on a bike faster than any other human, and, this is probably my favourite adventure of his, he once climbed Kilimanjaro dressed as a penguin.

The sheer scale and number of Sean’s adventurers are laid out in full on his website, seanconway.com
