Diz Runs With… Ben Schenck

On today’s show, I’m joining Ben Schenck for a few easy miles.

Ben Schenck, MTNmeister

Ben Schenck, the Original MTNmeister

Ben is the host of the MTNmeister podcast, a show dedicated to telling the stories of some of the most amazing people that participate in a variety of outdoor sports. He’s had on mountain climbers, ultra marathoners, paralympians, and more. The one thing that all have in common is a love of the outdoors and a willingness to test their limits.

Ben has been inspired by many of his guests, and he is testing his own limits as he prepares to run his first marathon in a couple of weeks. In addition to talking a lot about his upcoming race, here are some other highlights from our conversation:

  • His preference for running naked.
  • He also enjoys running and getting lost.
  • How the MTNmeister brand got its name.
  • Branching out from a background in finance, and how many of the principals of the finance industry are very similar to those that he talks to on his podcast.
  • Lessons he’s learned from the guests that have been on his show.
  • The concept of Loss Aversion, and how we all fall victim to it.
