If the name James Breakwell sounds familiar, you probably follow one of his popular social media accounts.
Best known for his family humor Twitter account @XplodingUnicorn, James went viral in 2016 and transformed James from a niche comedy writer into one of the most popular dads on social media.
The father of four is a former high school and collegiate runner who ran his first race in middle school – an ultra where runners did the same 5K loop as many times as possible in eight hours.
“I didn’t train at all,” remembers James. “The longest I’d ever run before that was maybe seven miles. I did exactly 10 loops—31 miles. At the end, I just wanted to die.”
In this episode, James talks about his new book “How To Be A Man (Whatever That Means)”, his approach to running in high school and college, his mentality of having “no mentality” when it comes to running, running as a way to combat writer’s block, and coaching his young daughters.
