As the Marathon Mind journey continues to build towards race day on 13th November in Mullingar, we caught up with the 4 amazing participants who have been challenged mentally, physically and emotionally over the past 8 months. If you’re new to the Marathon Mind journey, you can learn more about it, and the incredible participants, here.
Now, it’s time to hear more from participant #1, Phelim Gallagher, who was born and raised in Galway and has a love for sea swimming. Throughout the journey, he’s been able to achieve his goal of understanding his strengths but also working on his weaknesses. He wants to complete this journey as he saw it as a once in a lifetime opportunity to work with a team of world class coaches, he wanted to test his mental strength and he also wanted to honour his late father who passed away in 2018.
