Nick Symmonds on Run Gum, Entrepreneurship, and Beer Miles

My guest today is Nick Symmonds. This was a fascinating discussion because despite being a multiple time US Champion, Olympian, and World Silver Medalist in the 800m, he doesn't consider himself a professional runner. In this episode, Nick dispels some of the myths of the world of the professional distance runner. Some of the things we talk about are:

  • Why runners need to be more entrepreneurial and focus on their brand
  • What a Beer Mile is and Nick's blazing fast PR 
  • Why 2017 is going to be his last year of competition
  • His flourishing company Run Gum and the benefits the product has - also available on Amazon here
  • What advantage competing at a high level gave him in the world of business

He is a super busy guy, so this episode is short and sweet. If you want to know more about Nick's background then check out the resources below!
