Rich Roll is one of my all time favourite podcasters, authors and social media personalities. This talk is an excellent introduction to Rich’s bumpy ride to get to where he is today. In his late 30s Rich was an overweight, unfit, alcoholic corporate lawyer who, on the eve of his 40th birthday, received a fright that propelled him towards radically changing his unhealthy lifestyle. Rich is now an advocate for plant-based eating and an accomplished endurance athlete having raced the Ultra Man (515 kilometres), the Epic 5 and, one of the toughest endurance races in the world, ÖtillÖ.
Rich is inspiring because he made a decision to heal himself and persisted at it. He overcame numerous set backs and now shares his story with generosity and humility.
If you want to learn more about Rich, I suggest you read his book Finding Ultra
