Holiday Flashback - Brian Brown, along with his wife and one of his daughters, flew out of northern California in their personal plane, a Cessna 172, with plans to visit their oldest daughter in Mountain Home, ID.

In attempt to find a solution, the plane with the three family members aboard, slammed into the side of a mountain in Idaho. The book is: "Rescued: One Family's Miraculous Story of Survival"

Ep. 331: Ultra Running and the UTMB Race - Anna Marie Watson


Anna-Marie Watson grew up in an outdoor-loving, adventurous family. The adventures continued as she served nearly a decade in the British Army. Upon leaving the military, she knew she did not want a standard job and "normal" life. So, what did she do? She flew to New Zealand to bicycle the country. This started a series of adventures that led her to competing in the world half Ironman, running (and winning second female) the Marathon De Sables, and many other adventures. And she is not slowing down. She is back on to fill us in on the Ultra Trail Du Mont Blanc – a 171 km race around Mont Blanc. She offers coaching services as well through her company, Reach For More Coaching. She shares much about what it takes to build an adventure-focused lifestyle.
