When you change your relationship with alcohol, you leave more room in your life to challenge yourself in a number of ways, and that includes physical challenges. Giving up alcohol, or even choosing to drink less, improves your body’s health and your own energy levels and can help you get ready to take on challenges that you never thought that you could before.
“I want to look after my body, everything from what I eat, to drink, to what I put in it. I realize alcohol’s probably the worst thing you can put in it, from a sport point of view.”
Today’s episode of the One Year No Beer podcast comes to you from the Spartan Races at Marston Lodge in Market Harbor. At the event, Ruari has a chance to interview two elite racers, Jack Carpenter and Luke De-Benedictis. In addition to being elite racers, Luke and Jack have their own podcast, OCR Audio, where they discuss obstacle course racing and host guests.
In today’s interview, Luke and Jack discuss their backgrounds and past relationships with alcohol and what led them to the realization that they needed to make a change. Luke and Jack also discuss what got them into racing in the first place.
At the race, Ruari, Luke, and Jack visit the One Year No Beer tent, where Rurai challenges Luke and Jack to test their strength with the high striker. You can see how well they did by watching the Facebook video on the One Year No Beer Facebook page.
Luke and Jack offer advice for people who are interested in getting into racing and sprinting, but worry that they may not be up for the challenge. They also discuss some of their own races and the challenges that each of them has faced along the way. Listen to the episode to hear what comes next for Luke and Jack.
