Rebecca Rusch (@rebeccarusch) is one of the greatest endurance athletes in the world. She's a 6-time world champion across 3 different sports - not to mention 4 consecutive wins in the Leadville Trail 100, the storied ultra-endurance mountain bike race. With her incredible resume that includes national and world titles in whitewater rafting, adventure racing, orienteering and cross-country skiing, it's clear why she's been dubbed "The Queen of Pain." This is one of my all-time favorite interviews. We cover the benefits of making training more like play; stopping overtraining and resting; how even the best get nerves at the start line; how Rebecca spends 7 hours in the pain cave; eating to perform and recover; and changing training with age as Rebecca continues to tackle epic challenges in her mid-40s. And we challenge you not to be inspired when Rebecca explains why she does what she does: "I like the person I am...at the finish line...so I put up with the start line, nerves...and all hard work, because the person who’s at the finish line is somebody that I like better."
