    Ep. 1046: Running Across the Sahara Desert - Revisited - Ray Zahab

    Ep. 1046: Running Across the Sahara Desert - Revisited - Ray Zahab

    Soon after turning 30, Ray, a self-described “two pack a day smoker”, was tired of the direction his life was heading. His younger brother, who was pursuing a healthier lifestyle, was his inspiration to make a change. 
    Ray quickly set his eyes to try to complete a 100-mile ultramarathon. He won. 
    Within the next few years he put his life on a trajectory of adventures and purpose, combining feats as large as running across the Sahara Desert and taking scores of young adults on adventures through founding impossible2possible.com, an organization that aims to inspire and educate youth through adventure learning, inclusion, and participation in expeditions.

    Ep. 1045: Biking to Every National Park in the Lower 48 - Spencer McCullough

    Ep. 1045: Biking to Every National Park in the Lower 48 - Spencer McCullough

    On May 21st, 2024, in Acadia National Park, Spencer became the first person to complete a trip to all the national parks in the lower forty-eight states…by bicycle. It took 13 months, 18,000 miles, and a whopping 28 flat tires.
    In preparation for this bicycle trip, Spencer moved into a van, cut the expenses of his life down to save money so he could take this time off. This bike trip was only the beginning of a larger advocacy project. Spencer’s goal is to make sure that if you hike or bike into a federally
    managed campground, there will always be a cheap place for you to stay. This will provide the necessary support for people who are recreating without a car and offer an incentive to others to leave their car at home.
    When not on the move, Spencer is heavily involved in community organizing and advocacy work. In 2020 he wrote and passed a ballot initiative in Denver County regarding Internet access and has spent countless hours helping move the needle on walking, biking, and bus infrastructure in Denver.

    Ep. 1043: Mason Discusses Career Trade-Offs With “For the Love Of” Podcast

    Ep. 1043: Mason Discusses Career Trade-Offs With “For the Love Of” Podcast

    Hey folks! Today I’m (Mason, the host of Adventure Sports Podcast) getting interviewed! I was recently on For the Love Of to talk about my “career” in the outdoor/adventure industry and some of the tradeoffs, evolutions, and mishaps that have been made along the way. 
    Angie and Jeni were so wonderful to talk with. They asked amazing questions and I told a bunch of stories I haven’t thought about in years. 
    I love the premise of their show. Please be sure to check out the other interviews as it’s a perspective you won’t find anywhere else with adventure athletes.
