#210: Matt ‘Shep’ Shepard 2 — “6 Days in the North”, Going After a Canadian Record

Spread the love

This week we are catching back up with Shep to hear all about his experience going after the Canadian six day ultra running record!

In a continuation of Episode 205, we dig into the lessons learned and growth experienced during Shep’s “6 Days in the North”. A major theme is “expect the unexpected” as the project started with a massive torrential rainstorm. Enduring unknown challenges with adaptability and confidence is HUGE in life and Shep was a steward of this through this event.

We also dive into the concept of learning from failures and the cycle of “attempt, learn, adjust, attempt” which is a powerful driving factor to anyone’s success!

Hope you guys enjoy the episode! I could seriously chat with him for days as he is incredibly knowledgeable, passionate, driven and shares a wonderful growth mindset!
