Meet 78-year old Daphne Belt of Littlehampton, West Sussex in the United Kingdom. In 2014, she embarked on a mission to run 75 triathlons in 75 days – raising over 6000 pounds for a local childrens charity. In her career, she's earned six long distance world championship age group titles and 28 national age group titles over various distances. In this episode, we talk about how she pulled off completing 75 marathons in 75 days leading up to her 75th birthday, how racing has given her a reason and opportunity to travel the world, and how maintaining an athlete's mindset can help cultivate other non-athletic passions in life.
