Ultra Marathon Runner and Motivational Speaker

Ultra marathon runner Phil Jeremy inspires people throughout the world with his amusing blog http://trailjunkie-phil.blogspot.fr/ which tells the story of how he became an ultra-marathon runner from scratch at the age of 57 years. From jogging an hour 2 or 3 times a week, Phil made the decision to employ a coach to help him train to run 5 mountain trail ultra-marathons in 12 months (over 50/60 kilometres each) in both France and America.

Phil started his career as a computer salesman, but after calling in at a Model Agency to try and sell them a computer, he was scouted to become a model, which he did successfully for 5 years before opening his own Model Agency, Modelplan with his partner, Sue Sammon. Over 20 years later, Phil now manages the sport experts at www.modelplanactive.com

For many years Phil also ran Model Workshops for potential models, teaching them the skills needed to succeed in the industry. His motivational talks inspired many models including Nell McAndrew, celebrity model and elite marathon runner, who appeared in the very first ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’.

Phil’s motivational talks cover topics such as exercise, nutrition, and how to make positive changes in your professional and personal life. He speaks candidly, is entertaining, informative and is passionate about helping people improve the quality of their lives
