The Extra Mile - The Official Charity Miles Podcast

Jun 15, 2021

Ben Kenyon is the Head Strength Coach of the Philadelphia 76ers, an author, and the founder of the Great Day Squad.

With the Sixers, Ben helps some of the world's best athletes get stronger both physically and mentally.

He has also taken what he's learned from coaching elite athletes, and from his own personal journey, to now help everyday athletes (like me) perform their best - both on the road, and in life.

That's what his Great Day Squad is all about.  Which is why I was especially interested in chatting with Ben for this interview.

Big thanks to Ben for sharing so much with us.

And big thanks to our partners at Honey Stinger for introducing me to Ben.

As you've probably seen, we're thrilled to be partnering with Honey Stinger which makes a variety of nutrition and hydration solutions for athletes.

I've long been a fan of their waffles. And now they have a new hydration system that consists of three different mixes to help you Prepare, Perform and Recover.

This has been a huge game-changer for me personally as I'm currently undertaking my most difficult endurance challenge yet.  It's called the "Calendar Club" and to put it simply: each day this month, I'll be running the # of miles of days in the month.

So, June 1 = 1 mile... June 2 = 2 miles... June 30th = 30 miles.

That's 465 miles, half of which are after day 21.  

Today is June 15, so I did 15 miles.  So things are about to get really interesting.

Obviously, hydration is crucial for me in attempting this.  And Honey Stinger has been truly helpful.
