Marathon Trials & Tribulations, Annoying Social Media Posts and Entrepreneurial Bullsh*t

The Liverpool Weekender Podcast

12-09-2023 • 56 mins

Ever dreamed of running a marathon but felt it was beyond your capabilities? Joe's hilarious and insightful journey of training for a marathon, despite not being a runner, might just change your mind. In this episode, Joe shares his experiences, from an unplanned park run to the challenges he faced in marathon training. He also paints a vivid picture of his fitness journey and how discipline played a significant part in it, even when it came to curry rewards!

We also tackle the massive amounts of confusing and contradictory health and fitness information out there. We chat about an Instagram influencer who bucks the trend on dietary advice, and the importance of considering different viewpoints before making decisions that affect your health and wellness. On a lighter note, Joe shares his adventures in bar ownership and the financial trials it brings, leading us to ponder the pressure of chasing success.

Entrepreneurship and success - they've been glamorized on social media to an extent that sets unrealistic expectations, particularly for the younger generation. We emphasize that it's okay to be content with a fulfilling job and that you don't have to be a millionaire or an entrepreneur to be deemed successful. We also discuss the need for authenticity on social media platforms. Finally, we reveal our plans for the Liverpool podcast, aiming to bring you real stories from trailblazers and success stories in the business world. So, are you up for an adventure? Then subscribe to our podcast and join our exciting journey!

We launch a new episode every other Tuesday!

The show is hosted by Joe Clarke, Princes Trust Award winner and Dan McComish, co-founder of the Liverpool Weekender, who specialise in creating weekend trips for people coming into the city.
