In 1983 … a 61-year-old Australian potato farmer named Cliff Young shuffled to the starting line of the country’s famous Sydney to Melbourne (875-kilometer) Ultramarathon!
Minutes before setting out … Cliff stood there, dressed in overalls and rubber boots … while muscular, twenty-somethings reviewed their strategies and snickered about the stranger in their midst.
As the starter’s pistol fired … Cliff, removed his dentures and placed them in his pocket
(He hated how they rattled when he ran.)
At the time … the widely accepted method in ultramarathon racing was to run for 18 hours … then sleep for 6.
The thing is … no one told Cliff he was supposed to stop to sleep!
So … Cliff just kept running … and running … and running, even more!
In fact, on a diet of hot chocolate and water … Cliff ran for five and a half days straight!
And to everyone’s surprise … he crossed the finish line in first place – 12 hours faster than anyone had before!
What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s current role?
That said … given that our latest role is based in Australia … we thought Mr. Young’s incredible story was an appropriate way to serve up this opportunity!
