Swim, bike, run! That about sums up the lifestyle of Mike Hudock, an elite triathlete who makes time to work out twice each day in between medical school classes and studies. Having begun his triathlete journey six years ago as a freshman in college, Mike has remained disciplined in his training regimen throughout and has barely missed a week, let alone a day in that time frame.
Mike and I had an open conversation about mental health and the many benefits that exercise plays in relieving stress and anxiety. It is unfathomable to us how anyone can choose to not exercise, especially since we have both achieved so many mental, emotional and physical rewards from it. So many people find the excuse that they do not have the time to workout. That’s an illegitimate excuse.
You must make the time if you want something. Then, in turn, you’ll have the time.
If you are interested in learning more about physical fitness with an emphasis on running, in general, then I suggest you go check out Ep. 16. I look forward to Mike’s continued ascent in the triathlete and running world. His next major event will be the Athens Half Marathon in Athens, Ohio, on Sunday, April 15th. Good luck, Mike!
