AOF:172 “The Mountains Are Calling and I Must Go.”

On The Show

  • Our guest is a world renowned author and alpinist with a different take on a similar story of adventure on the tops of the biggest mountains in the world.
  • We talk about what it takes to up and leave and live in a foreign country.
  • Why training plans don’t always work and what is next for her and her adventure.
  • She gives a great physical challenge and is a thoughtful and passionate athlete.  We think she bridged the gap pretty well.
