I've had my YouTube Channel for a few years and although the viewers of my daily vlogs are from every corner of the world, they feel like family. We have a deep connection, often sharing the most vulnerable commonalities.
I asked in the Mareathoner Facebook Group, "in one sentence tell me: who is the Mareathoner'. I was overwhelmed with pride and a sense of community at their responses. If you've been wondering yourself who the Mareathoner is, I invite you to read below. (Then join us!)
