Jez & Damo speak to inspiring Tasmanian youngster Meriem Daoui, who at 22 was recognised with the Peter Norman humanitarian award (following legends like Deeks & Wellings),  holder of multiple Aussie age based marathon records, Type 1 Diabetic, Oncology nurse & distance running fanatic, a lady that ran Tassie’s hardest half marathon 7 days in a row, clocking up the equivalent elevation gain of climbing Everest.  Learn how running is a significant tool she uses to manage her mental health & how starting to run helped her out of some deep dark places while being bullied at school.  This young lady has achieved so much already, her eloquence & grasp of what running does & means to us all is beyond her years, we’ve no doubt we’ll all be hearing a lot more about Meriem’s work for decades to come!
