S1 Ep 011: Military, Mining and Ultra Running

With special guest: Matt Pomery, Marathon Runner

Matt and I initially met over coffee to talk about running, after our partners had suggested we meet. Six months later we were training for an 100km mountain ultramarathon and he went on to complete the race, having not run more than a half marathon previously. Through the course of the final stages of training, and the race itself, Matt was conned in to a sleep study by myself.

Matt is a father who enjoys gardening and getting out on the trails on the weekends. He has worked in small and large scale mining operations across Australia for 15 years, and also served in the Australian Army for 6 years.
