Day 8 - Bret Florens on switching addictions from alcohol and drugs to Running

Day is Brett Floren's running story. Brett's story is one of the most inspiring stories I have ever had the priviledge of sharing on the Podcast. 

Brett Florens is a well-renowned photographer as well as an accomplished runner. Brett started running when he was in the Police during a 6-week training camp which kickstarted his fitness and weight loss. Brett enjoyed being fit so much that he used the momentum from that camp to stay fit. His running journey progressed from running 5k's 3 times a week to a half marathon and then a full marathon. Fast forward 30 years later and Brett has completed over 25 Comrades, 10 Two Oceans Ultra Marathons and over 120 marathons all over the world. Brett is also the Chairman of a local running phenomenon in Durban called Regents.


Day 9 - Maybe Adventure is in your backyard?
