Damian shares his personal story with ultra running, but our conversation goes far beyond the miles. He share how his curiousity about how to lower his own environmental footprint while racing was the seed the grew into his book, “We Can't Run Away from This,” which is shedding light on the massive environmental footprint of the running industry.
We discuss how he artfully combines humour and activism, navigating the complex terrain of climate discourse, and the significance of humility in the sustainability space. He emphasizes that it's not about perfection but about striving to be better, not bitter.
