Podcast: 85 Years Young Vegan Ultramarathoner Paul Youd

Today I have Paul Youd on the podcast.  He is an 85 year old endurance athlete from the UK.  His knees bothered him so bad in his 50s that he stopped running and started biking.  Then he became vegan after learning about the cruel conditions factory farm animals endure.  One day chasing his grandson, he realized his knees no longer hurt and he resumed running.  Fast forward to the lockdown, he decided to try a 50k distance and  set his sights on a press up goal of one million before age 90. 

He is a runner, plant based, and a bread maker instructor.  What’s not to like.  Enjoy this motivating interview.  He is my people.
