#9. SPUTNIK – Running, adventures and making a difference

If you ever want to cry with laughter, listen to Sputnik tell a story. His running feats and adventure tales are so incredibly inspiring (and hilarious depending on his experience), that you’d be inspired to think anything is possible, or as Sputnik prefers to say, Awesome is Possible. In this episode he recounts the hilarious, the deathly serious and everything in between.
