We were on the top of the world.  Well, the top of the ski mountain that sometimes feels like the top of the world. Why was their fresh powder here?  We got a late start and still, knee deep powder?  It's crazy, thousands of other people had the chance to ski this stuff but they didn't.  Why?  Because they didn't go just a little bit further.  Just 70 yards more and they would have been in heaven like we were.  There are plenty of examples of when going just a little bit further can make a big difference and that's what today's show is all about.  Thanks for listening to the Athlete On Fire show!

Accountability, sense of purpose, new skills, and fun.  These are some of the reasons you should train for something bigger than you have ever done. Something out of your comfort zone.  One of the only ways you know if training for your health is working is if you get sick or hurt.  That's no way to do this thing, life.  On today's should we hope to give you specific points for yourself, or someone you know needs to hear it.  The Athlete On Fire show is about bridging the gap between amazing athletes, adventurers, and entrepreneurs!

A friend to all that know him, Johnny Waite has been both racer and director of endurance races including the infamous Death Race.

Having seen and experienced pretty much everything there is to offer, he not only knows how to do endurance racing, but how to win them too. Team SISU caught up with him and discussed not sleeping, how to do tests, and of course bear hugs in Jurassic Park.  SISU:RADIO is a part of the Athlete On Fire Network.
