In this episode, we are chatting with Marathon swimmer Catherine Breed about her record setting 25 mile swim across Monterey Bay!!
This story has it all- the pure human will to battle through miles and miles of open ocean battling all sorts of obstacles like jellyfish, freezing cold water, whale poop, and great white encounters. Catherine is an astounding athlete who has turned a collegiate swimming career into a passion for open water marathon swimming!
We chat all about what it takes for open water marathon swimmers to complete these huge swims, the lessons she has learned along the way, what it was like to complete an epic adventure with the Iron Cowboy James Lawrence, how she handles intimidation and big challenges, and we compare these events to ultramarathons.
Hope you enjoy the episode as much as I did!!
