In 2018 I first met Akbar Naqvi, he wore weight lifting shoes to run the 400m, 800m or 1km parts of my CrossFit classes at InnerFight, we joked and laughed about it. One day he came to me and asked me if I would help him run an Ultra Marathon. There is a lot in between but I guess you could day the rest is history.
Just recently Akbar ran 200km through the Al Qudra desert here in Dubai and I had the honor of supporting him. The guys over on the Run Strong podcast interviewed Akbar about the run and I thought it was only right that we feature that show right here this week.
What a human being!
Enjoy the show.
