The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Beau Miles, the Backyard Adventurer, poly-jobist, Doctor of Philosophy, author, doer and self-described oddball, is an inspiration to those of us looking to discover adventure in our lives to turn our ordinary into extraordinary. Johnny Waite talks to him about the ways we can make our exercise fun without worrying about time or other unnecessary external factors.

“Well everyone’s got a body metric, right? With, ‘How much I weigh, how much I run, how fast I do it, how good I feel, how much sleep I’ve had, how much creatine powder I’ve put in my drink.’ You know, it’s all very measured. And I'm completely not that way. I've never been a Strava person or a measurement person. I just go on feel and whatnot. Which is still quite strategic. But it's just not as number driven, I suppose.” says Beau Miles.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

- The love for going long on your journey and discovering the world
- Enjoying the element of the unknown and fixing things along the way
- How to find adventure close to home
- The Backyard Adventurer philosophy
- You’re next adventure doesn’t have to be extreme for you to test yourself and have fun
