Think your life is full? Never enough time to combine career, family time, travelling adventures and personal challenges? Does that little voice in your head tell you it’s time to slow down at your age or that that the pain in your knees would never let you run a marathon?
Listen to an inspiring interview of Lucia Klestincova with Dominic Hayes – and you might realize there’s always more time for ‘stuff’. By day, he’s a mild-mannered radio frequency expert working on Europe’s satellite navigation system Galileo; by night, a desert running super hero! Well almost…
His day job, working in a drab, grey, Brussels office, sees him managing the radio frequencies essential for the Galileo satellite navigation system, a role that requires his specialist technical knowledge as well as his policy-making and diplomatic skills. However, he’s also a blogger, traveller, biker, mountain climber and ultramarathon runner.
In this podcast edition, he shares what it’s like to negotiate on behalf of the European Union with the Americans, Chinese, Russians, Japanese and Indians on the one hand, and how he survived a 7-day, 235km Moroccan marathon in the Sahara desert on the other hand – all this while carrying Arthur, his squeaky rubber chicken! Listen to his advice on how to push through your physical limits, how to overcome pain and how to prepare your mind for the challenges of a lifetime. Next time you hear that voice in your head, you can tell it (politely) where to go!
