What can we learn about living from the prospect (indeed the certainty) of dying? Meet David Richman. David is an author, speaker, trainer, and endurance athlete. For the purposes of this conversation, he is the author of Cycle of Lives, a book that tells 15 different people’s stories around the emotional chaos of cancer. David lost his own sister to cancer, which, as will hear, led to his ventures in endurance sport. That is relevant because not only did David write 15 very compelling stories, but he also rode a bike across the United States to meet with those subjects in person, covering a distance of over 5,000 miles (approximately 8,000 kilometers).
We talk about all of that and more, including:
- The certainty of death, and what that does to those facing it directly, and those around them;
- How to have difficult conversations;
- Various stories from the book;
- Endurance sport and pushing one’s limits.
