Athlete On Fire

Our guest is wildly entertaining.  Almost as wild as the events she competes in all over the world as the first female obstacle course racer.  She tells stories of failure and why you shouldn't take yourself so seriously. She shares a story of a man who was once 700 pounds and how it inspired her.  Her story about a crazy event in Nicaragua has everything from carrying live chickens to climbing bamboos poles and almost losing it.  She is also a writer on obstacle racing and has her very own book with her expertise in the sport to showcase for all.  This is one of those shows you hope will never end which means we will just have to do it all again!
