Welcome to Allego’s new podcast, Adapter’s Advantage: Breakthrough Moments that Lead to Success. In this episode, endurance athlete and business leader Adam Scully-Power describes his transformational health journey from out-of-shape executive to ultramarathoner.

Episode 1: Expanding the Boundaries of What’s Possible | Adam Scully-Power

On the cusp of 40, Adam was 50 pounds overweight and unable to run a mile without stopping. His desire to lose a few pounds led this investment executive, husband, and father of four to a new vocation as an endurance athlete. Adam has competed in some of the world’s most grueling events including 100-mile ultramarathons and the 556-mile Uberman ultratriathlon.

“What I have come to realize is that the world conspires around you now and then to present an opportunity—a moment—and you have to be open to it and willing to act.” — Adam Scully-Power

From This Episode

See how Adam Scully-Powers’s journey began:

Adam: “I went into a coffee shop one morning and bumped into a friend of mine who was an avid runner. He was the person in town that was described as doing all these crazy races. And I asked him simply, ‘What are you training for?’ He had such passion and enthusiasm as he began to describe the 110-mile ultramarathon. At the time, I couldn’t even comprehend how anyone could run that far.

Host Mark Magnacca: “Let’s just put this in perspective for our listeners. The average marathon, like the Boston Marathon, is 26.2 miles. That, in and of itself, is an extraordinary physical achievement for almost everyone who does it. Then you have people who do the Iron Man, which consists of swimming, running and biking..”

Adam: “Before that I was 50 pounds overweight. I had changed my diet and I started running a little bit. But he stopped mid-sentence and looked me square in the eye and said six words that really have changed the direction of my life. And that is, ‘You should do it with me.’ I call these moments the affirmational nudge. That’s when someone sees something in you that you may not see or believe in yourself.”
