Ep 92: The Journey Of Ken Rideout – From a Drug Addict to One of the Fastest Marathoners in the World Above 50
In the 92nd episode of Run with Fitpage, we have the opportunity to host our guest who is nothing short of an inspiration – Ken Rideout. Ken is a runner, triathlete, boxer, and most importantly, a great human who has overcome various adversities to achieve where he is today.
Ken Rideout is a father, husband, and a great boxer, runner, and triathlete based in Boston. He is one of the fastest runners in the age group of 50+, and nothing less than a superhuman. Ken, at the age of 18 worked as a guard in the same prison where his step-father and step-brother were inmates. He then discovered Ironman, made a goal, prepared for it, and achieved what a dream for many is.
In this episode, Vikas and Ken talk about the various adversities – which both of them converted into opportunities, how Ken started his running journey, how he manages his time with 4 kids, a business, and endurance sports altogether, and a lot more.
