Our last mountain biking podcast took us to the South Pole. This time we’re heading up North to one of the most iconic races on the planet, the Iditarod!
1,000 miles through some of the most pristine, awe-inducing wilderness in the whole entire world, the Iditarod takes competitors, be it dogsled teams, runners, or bikers, across Alaska from Anchorage all the way to Nome. Through this journey, competitors must traverse mountain ranges, frozen rivers, and even sea ice as they battle some of the harshest elements imaginable.
Today’s guest Steve Cannon is an ultra endurance adventurer from the great state of Iowa. He’s taken on pretty hefty goals in the past, running completely around Lake Michigan, running across Iowa, and rock climbing some tough Colorado routes, but his current finish at the Iditarod takes all of his experiences to the next level!
In this episode we really dig into Steve’s concept of adventure- how it fuels him, the lessons he’s learned about himself by overcoming obstacles, and how he’s handled the loneliness and self doubt that comes with multi-day adventures.
We get into some great mindset conversations all while Steve shares tales from his unbelievable journey across Alaska!!
Buckle up. This one is AWESOME!!
Steve’s greater purpose is to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Please help him out and donate HERE.
(Steve has also written quite a bit about these adventures and his book “40 Days” about his journey around Lake Michigan is available free at his website expandyourpossible.com)
