Athlete On Fire

Karlyn is in the swimming Hall Of Fame but her journey was not a straight line by any means.  Tons of early success in the sport as well as an unstable home and early drinking led to an interesting route.  Dropping out of college and binge drinking for more than ten years led to an intervention that turned it around at 31.  She enrolled in college and to swim at age 35.  Her story is about what it means to get a "Do Over", and, that it's never to late to start what you were meant to do.  Enjoy the show.

Moriah hails from Northeast Pennsylvania and started running about 5 years ago. It wasn't until she recently found trail running that she feels she truly found her passion.  There will be blood, and bones showing, mud, and lots more to learn from her first experiences as an ultra runner.  We just hope you pick something up from her!

The beaming grin of Matt Waller is a trademark of the man that has visited more Death Races and other endurances events than most.

Despite the crushing pain that he and fellow athletes choose to inflict on themselves, it's not unusual to find yourself in a group of people in a river, dark woods or drenched forest at 2am and hear giggling coming from the back somewhere. That's Matt.

Laughter is his medicine and that's why he never gets ill. His upbeat, happy disposition is his default setting and that's perhaps why he has accomplished so much in his endurance journey.

The equally juvenile Cookie of Team SISU caught up with Matt recently and after (most of) the giggling and laughing subsided, they spoke about Matt's experience with endurance racing.
