We have an extremely special episode of The BibRave Podcast for you this week! Episode 59 shares three unique segments about runners who have overcome what may be perceived as tough, and sometimes seemingly impossible odds. We hope you enjoy and take to heart these incredible stories! First, Tim and Andy interview James Ortiz. James was an all-star collegiate runner with an aspiring running career until a tragic accident changed his life forever. Listen to his powerful story of acceptance, determination, and strength. Next, John McKay tells Tim and Andy about his life as a blind runner. John shares what it is like to hit the roads (and trails!) with limited sight, and how his passion for running has kept him striving to achieve what some thought he could never do. Lastly, Julia returns to the hosting chair to join Tim for an interview with Richard Reed. Richard tells his amazing weight-loss journey, and shows how a new take on life can literally and figuratively reshape your life! Check out the latest episode below.
