The Podcast: Finding Your Summit
Every week I talk to amazing people who have incredible stories of overcoming adversity to finding their way. The conversations are real, authentic and from many different walks of life such as Sports, Business, Relationships, Music and of course my mountaineer community. If you're stuck or looking for inspiration, this podcast is for you!
This weeks guest
This week I interview Kyle Maynard who was born with no arms or legs. He has done more in his life than I ever have done in mine. He has won 2 ESPY's, been a champion wrestler, opened a Crossfit Gym and climbed both Mt Kilimanjaro and Aconcagua among other feats.
His motto is all -- No Excuses. If he can accomplish things like this and be an inspiration to others than anyone can challenge themselves. There are no limits to what Kyle can do. I first met him at 21,000' on Aconcagua and couldn't believe what I was witnessing. He was literally crawling up the mountain and made it to the top. What an incredible human being! Great pod.

For variety, add a little salsa, pesto or pine nuts. - Deb Klein
