BILL BRADLEY INTERVIEWED BY DAWSON CHURCH
This Single Interview Has The Power To Change Your Life
"Listening to bad news makes you overestimate the odds of risk"
EXCLUSIVE AUDIO INTERVIEW: DAY 14
One of the most inspiring versatile extreme endurance athletes in our time, 52 year old Bill Bradley undertakes the most challenging endurance sporting events in the world.
Bradley craves improbable challenges set against nature's unforgiving scenarios. The average age of an extreme endurance athlete is 35 years old. Bradley, now 52, stands alone yet he continues to take on grueling events around the world and continues to amaze his fans with many completions. Bradley states, "If I can compete in the world's toughest endurance events as a 52-year-old with average talent, why can't the average person go out of his comfort zone, face his fears and go after his goals?"
For Bradley, an average event is a 100-mile foot race. To date, he has finished a Triple Ironman (composed of a 7.2-mile swim, a 336-mile bike ride and a 78.6-mile run); the Race Across America Marathon (RAAM), a 3,000-mile bike race from Oceanside, California to Annapolis, Maryland; the Furnace Creek 508, a bicycle race through Death Valley and the Susitna 100, a 100-mile run across the frozen Alaskan tundra while pulling a 40-pound sled filled with survival gear. He ran 199 miles with an added 1.2 mile swim under the Golden Gate Bridge at the 100 mile mark, swam 17 miles in the English Channel without a wetsuit and climbed 14,000 ft. up the coldest mountain in the world, Alaska's Mt. Denali. As if all of this were not enough to quench his passion to be challenged, Bill Bradley pushes onward. In 2010 he became the 24th person to run and complete the 292 mile Double Badwater Ultramarathon with a Mt. Whitney summit in record setting temperatures reaching 135 degrees, earning him the name "EPIC" Bill Bradley.
Bradley has a special kind of courage, one that faces a great deal of uncertainty. His trademark motto, "show up and suffer!" allows him to conquer fear and push to new lengths. He stretches the bounds of what one human can possibly do creating a benchmark for others to see beyond. Bradley states, "I can never think about quitting, ever."
