Name: Patrik Mårdh
What’s your ultimate goal as far as your sport is concerned?
To train and run 100 mile-races all around the globe
What does healthy living mean to you?
An active lifestyle means everything to me. This is where I find peace and motivation to achieve new goals.
How do you stay active on an everyday basis?
To get in the training as a parent, I need to find other times. For me it works to get up early and get my distance training in the morning before my kids wake up. Another big part is to always do transport runs to work, meetings and other activities.
What’s your favourite nut?
The Big Boy Cashews are just amazing!
How and when do you typically eat nuts?
For me, it's the world's best snack. Great to have some nuts during a really long run and also prefect to have in your dropbag during an ultrarace.
What’s your go-to dish that includes nuts?
Always in my acai-bowls
Any training tips that you’d like to share with our followers?
Never forget that training should be fun and do not lose focus on your own goal.
