Ep. 497: Rowing Across the Atlantic in 43 Days - Laura Try

Image
Laura doesn’t particularly like rowing, which sounds crazy after you realize she rowed a boat 3,000 miles across the Atlantic with a team of three other women in just 43 days 2 hours and 20 minutes. On top of that, they managed to do this by rowing in 2-hour shifts, 24-hours a day, every single day. It’s not rowing that Luara loves, but a pure and unfiltered adventure and the push of the human spirit to experience it.We hope you enjoy this wonderful conversation around adventure and the unexpected joys and struggles when you put yourself out there.Instagram: @lauratryukTwitter: @lauratryukFacebook: @lauratryukYoutube: @lauratryukSave 20% off the best freeze-dried meals you’ll ever eat with Peak Refuel.

Ep. 494: From Collapsed Spine to Accomplished Climber - Astrid Southam

Image
Adventure (ad·ven·ture): an unusual and exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activity. That basically sums up life itself. The most unexpected, seemingly unfair, and hazardous things happen to us at every turn. We want adventure, but don't always love when it shows up. A life-altering injury is, by the definition above, an adventure. Well, it's not always exciting, but you get the picture.  To go from a collapsed spine at the age of 19 to being on a sponsored climbing expedition to the Ivory Coast is not an overnight journey, nor is it pleasant, but it is adventure. Astrid's story is one of hope, patience and sheer grit to rise from what many would call a crippling situation (literally) to seeing the beauty in what happens to all of us at some point and accepting it as what life is all about.  Adventure doesn't always lead us down a peaceful path but teaches us to find peace no matter what path we're on.  Instagram: @astridsoutham Project Côte d'Ivoire https…
