Message today “Keep moving forward” 1 step a t a time, inspired by listening to the story of endurance athlete Tommy Rivers Puzey on Rich Roll Podcast. Tommy Rivs was training for a race in the Grand Canyon when he was struggling to breath and barely made it out alive, he thought he had a bad case of covid, only to to discover after multiple dr visits that he had an extremely rare and advanced form of lung Cancer. He was eventually in a medically induced coma for over 4 months, 7 total months in the hospital. Just prior to his illness he was competing in the US Olympic trial for the marathon with a PR of 2:18. 1 year after he took his first steps after his illness h completed the NYC marathon in an agonizing 9 hours. This was an emotional listen.
