Pete Ripmaster has an amazing story of triumph by ultra running the 1000 mile Iditarod Invitational. He went from dead last, having a near death experience, to winning the race after just a few attempts.
Being a devout father and husband, Pete has to be diligent to carve out time to train for these truly mind-blowing achievements of endurance and grit. You'll enjoy his fresh, balanced and insightful perspective on his achievements and hopefully learn some of the lessons he shares from some truly difficult times on the trail.

How to follow them:
In 1982, at the age of just twenty-three and halfway through her architecture studies, Elspeth Beard left her family and friends in London and set off on a 35,000-mile solo adventure around the world on her 1974 BMW R60/6.
Reeling from a recent breakup and with only limited savings from her pub job, a tent, a few clothes and some tools, all packed on the back of her bike, she was determined to prove herself. She had ridden bikes since her teens and was well traveled. But nothing could prepare her for what lay ahead.
When she returned to London nearly two and a half years later she was stones lighter and decades wiser. She'd ridden through unforgiving landscapes and countries ravaged by war, witnessed civil uprisings that forced her to fake documents, and fended off sexual attacks, biker gangs and corrupt police convinced she was trafficking drugs. She'd survived life-threatening illnesses, personal loss and brutal accidents that had left permanent scars and a black hole in her memory. And she'd fallen in love with two very different men. In an age before email, the internet, mobile phones, sat-navs and, in some parts of the world, readily available and reliable maps, Elspeth achieved something that would still seem remarkable today.
Told with honesty and wit, this is the extraordinary and moving story of a unique and life-changing adventure.

The story that's so incredible it deserves a second listen. All the way back in episode 217, Steve joined us to recount his adventure of survival.
An avid sailor, naval architect and New York Times best-selling author, Steve Callahan designed and built his 21' sloop the Napolean Solo to sail it across the Atlantic Ocean from Newport, RI to England with plans to compete in a regatta. Once underway in the race, Steve experienced issues with the boat and was forced to drop out. Once repairs were made, he continued on his way only to be stopped in his tracks in the middle of the ocean when his sailboat was struck and began to sink.
Listen is as Steve recounts his 76 day journey across the Atlantic in his life raft with only his ditch kit and a small spear gun with him.
