I love this podcast.
This podcast has great content. I think it has the ability to zoom in and out. The race itself and what experiences it births as well as how it changes people is fantastic. It’s awesome how the spartan race has catapulted into people pushing themselves into the abyss which is the death race.
Yancy and Don will have you on the edge of your seat with their ability to weave incredibly profound storytelling with deep and impactful life lessons! Give a listen... you will laugh, possibly cry, and walk away feeling empowered to do and be more!
I did this race four times and every time it was a lot about living. Don is arguably a genius and without a doubt is meant to be doing a podcast. This is a must listen.
