How a runner who is blind tackles a 250km marathon

An inspiring podcast about Simon Wheatcroft, a young marathon runner who is blind, who tackles  a 250 km desert run in Namibia. He shares the journey leading up to the run which has both highlights and many challenges. This story shows just how determined Simon is to not let his blindness get between him and a goal. Simon was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa at 17 years of age and has shown how you should never give up even if life presents challenges and problems, as Simon says  “you just have to  find unique ways to solve those problems.”

 This podcast is well worth the listen, and will inspire anyone who needs that extra bit of motivation to set goals and achieve them even when life presents a series of small and large challenges.
