Colin O’Brady is a world record holding explorer and one of the world’s top endurance athletes. Fresh out of college, Colin had a vast world of possibility in front of him when a tragic accident left him hospitalized. Unsure if he’d ever walk again, his injuries covered nearly 25% of his body, primarily damaging his legs and feet. Despite the odds, his mother encouraged him to dream big and he dared to set a seemingly impossible goal that set him on a path to rethink what’s possible.
Fast forward to today, and Colin’s list of achievements is staggering. In this episode, we get into many of his harrowing adventures, including his solo, unsupported, unassisted crossing of Antartica.
