Ian was living an ordinary life in New Zealand when a series of life-changing events changed his perspective on what did and didn't matter to him in life. Ultimately, it was the realisation that he didn't much like himself, let alone love himself, that led Ian down a path of exploration and self-discovery that resulted in him making seismic changes to his life.

Today, Ian is a professional, sponsored, ultra runner who lives an almost nomadic life; combining his love of travel with his other true passion, running long distances.

In this episode of the Eat Your Greens podcast, Ian shares his story, the power of movement on the mind, body and soul, and what he's discovered truly matters in life.
