Have you seen the documentary, Murderball? Our team loves wheelchair rugby. Listen for a feature on an upcoming episode (warning: the MTV documentary is a little more than risqué).

It was an honor to have Erik Weihenmayer with us. We enjoyed a wide-ranging ramble through Erik’s inspiring career, from mountain climbing to breaking through life’s many barriers. Kevan took the No Barriers Pledge. He’s going to run in the NYC Marathon? You will love Erik’s pledge: “Dinner at 5?” Erik spoke of the memoir he’s now writing. It will be released this coming winter. This is the 15th anniversary of his Mt. Everest summit. He speaks of his thrilling visit to the National Federation of the Blind Convention after being the first blind man to stand on the top of the world. The Find Your Fit™ Team highly recommends both of Erik’s books, “To Touch the Top of the World: A Blind Man’s Journey to Climb Farther Than the Eye Can See,” and “The Adversity Advantage: Turning Everyday Struggles into Everyday Greatness.” They’re available on Audible and BARD.
Do blind runners run with their guide dogs? Some do. Hear Amelia Dickerson’s comments in this episode’s short flashback from Episode 4.
Fit Chat – Jessica talks about strategies to reduce anxiety when using workout facilities.
Boston Lager? Boston Cream Pie? Boston Baked Beans? Kevan says it’s hard to eat healthy on the road. The WE Team went to Boston last week to cheer on Jessica’s marathon run. She took 5 minutes off of her previous personal best.
We highly recommend Eyes-Free Fitness®. It’s a great tool. Our listeners tell us that these are audio programs they buy and keep using.
Your job – Take The Pledge! Share your pledge with us, too, if you want. We’d love to hear from you.
