Today’s guest is Terence Steinberg – an endurance athlete whose journey began when he asked himself a simple question: what are my limits? To find out, he spent the next ten years competing in Ironman triathlons and ultramarathons up to 145 miles nonstop – and learned that human performance is defined as much by emotion as by chemistry. Inspired by this idea and the opportunity to help others to propel themselves forward, Terence is preparing for his biggest adventure yet: rowing 3,000 miles solo and unsupported across the Atlantic Ocean beginning December 2019.
