Dylan Bowman – The thoughtful mind behind the athlete
Dylan is phenomenal friend and a phenomenal athlete. I have learnt a lot from Dylan and I hope through this conversation you can take some of his guidance and apply it in a positive light in your own world. Not entirely centred around Ultra Running this conversation touches upon topics such as training your emotional fitness, internal and external validation, and what passion vs identity looks like for Dylan.
