EP12 - Challenging Yourself and Recapping a 100 Mile Marathon I Didn't Finish

Alto by Libertas is inspired by the Italian phrase "Verso l'alto", which means "to the heights" and is inspired by the heroic life of Pier Giorgio Frassati. Listen to raw and authentic conversations on Faith, Culture, Fitness and Mission-Driven Entrepreneurship that will help us pursue "the heights" together!

Leo, founder of Libertas and host of the Alto podcast, shares thoughts on challenging ourselves, running's spiritual and psychological dimensions, and recaps a 100 mile ultra-marathon experience that he didn't finish!

Topics Discussed:

  • Running as a freeing, peaceful experience that can open you up for a powerful connection with God.
  • Running as a way to strip away surface level preoccupations to enhance your clarity in life and Faith.
  • Running as a way to cultivate and grow your capacity to fight interior battles and combat complacency and mediocrity.
