No Finish Line - HUNTER WOODHALL
"Most things in life we tell ourselves in our mind this number is gonna make me happy... then we get to that point and we're like ahh no" - Hunter Woodhall Hunter was born with fibular hemimelia and at 11 months old both of his legs were amputated below the knee. In the nearly two decades since he has won Paralympic medals, developed a massive social media following, and become the first double amputee to receive a Division 1 track and field scholarship. Hunter and I talk about his difficult recruiting process, the benefits of having a public persona, and the Olympics vs. Paralympics. We also get into the weeds on the mechanics of starting a race with two prosthetics. I had high expectations going into this one, and Hunter blew right past them. Hard to do this interview justice in writing, just listen and enjoy.
