rich roll  Dad Athlete Author 📗Finding Ultra👂Rich Roll Podcast✌🏼 I like talking to people & running far🌱

If @rossedgley is a real-life Aquaman, I nominate ultrarunner extraordinaire @dirtdiva333 Catra Corbett as a real-life Wonder Woman. Beyond her polychromatic goth-punk aesthetic she is a beast of an athlete — with over 250 ultramarathons under her belt, she's the first American woman to run over 100 miles or more on more than 100 occasions (137 to date), holds the fastest known time (FKT) for running the John Muir Trail double (425 miles), and is the oldest (53) woman to run 3 consecutive 200-mile races in just 10 weeks.
. . . .
But most impressive are the obstacles Catra has faced and overcome to become the shining example of humanity and athleticism she is today - meth addiction; sexual and emotional abuse; disordered eating; and even a suicide attempt.
This week she tells her story, and it's amazing. Clickable link in bio and viewable at
Enjoy! ✌🏼🌱🏃🏾‍♀️ - Rich

From the ashes we are reborn. From destruction comes strength. . . . . .
Happy Sunday everyone. Hope you got out there today. Let me know whatcha got done. Because together we #BuildTheHouse

Don’t be deceived by his goofball tactics — @rossedgley is a true badass & quite possibly the fittest man alive. Delight yourself with this real life Aquaman legend & UK-based Jack LaLane-esque strongman as he recounts in vivid, breathtaking detail how how he completed his world-record setting #GreatBritishSwim - a 1,992 mile, 157 day swim-circumnavigation of Great Britain without once touching land. Ross’ story is unbelievably compelling — but it’s how this lovely chap comports himself that impresses me the most. As always, clickable link in bio✌🏼🌱🏊🏽‍♂️🇬🇧 - Rich

The Universe works in amazing ways. I discovered @davidgoggins in 2007 & he was my initial inspiration to tackle my first Ultraman in 2008. I was honored to host him on my show in late 2016. Today he is a podcast superstar, but that was his very first podcast experience. To date it remains the most popular episode in the history of my show — by a long shot.
. . . . . .
Around that very same time I fell in love with @adamskolnick’s book ‘One Breath’ so I invited him on the podcast. We became friends. Moved by the Goggins episode, Adam was compelled to make significant lifestyle changes. The following year he became Goggins’ writing partner on ‘Can’t Hurt Me’. That book came out a couple days ago and is currently sits at #3 OF ALL BOOKS on Amazon. Yesterday all three of us got together — exactly 2 years subsequent to my first podcast with David — to celebrate their extraordinary achievement and record a follow up podcast. You just can’t make this sh*t up.
. . . . . .
The podcast is epic - everything I hoped it would be, and then some. It drops on New Year’s day — just as our first one 2 years ago — to launch you into 2019 prepared to make it your best year ever. Get ready people👊🏽
PS - Is that a slight smile I detect, David?

I feel strongly about healthcare and wanted to make sure everyone in the US knows that the open enrollment Dec. 15 deadline for securing coverage is coming up fast. Like Alex, @StrideHealth has been a huge help in ensuring the best coverage for my family at the lowest possible price and they provide great customer support all year round. Check out and get covered before the Dec. 15th deadline — and check out Alex’s awesome giveaway below - a free poster signed by podcast guests Alex, @jimmy_chin & @chaivasarhelyi.
I have never posted branded content on IG before - this is not a paid ad. Stride simply asked if I would help spread the word about the Dec. 15 cutoff and I’m happy to do it because I know what it’s like to go without health insurance and I know how much @stridehealth can help you avoid what I went through.

@stridehealth has been helping me out with health care for the last several years, and for anyone who’s seen Free Solo you know how important that’s been in keeping me healthy. Stride can help anyone save time and money finding health care, but the Open Enrollment period ends December 15th.
Stride and I are doing a giveaway until then - anyone who posts a pic related to how/why/when they used/needed healthcare and tags @stridehealth and me can be chosen to win a Free Solo poster signed by the directors and me (or a few other cool prizes, depending on how many people post). So show some scars and check out to check out health care options. (Link in bio)

Also, I’m personally all for universal healthcare and I’d happily pay higher taxes to make sure that everyone gets the healthcare that they need. But in the absence of that, a company like @stridehealth can certainly help.

Don’t wait for January to craft the 2019 you wish to manifest. Get after that sh*t now. #ThisIs52 #BuildTheHouse

Finding rhythm in my natural environment. Big year ahead. The work begins now. Who’s coming with me? ✌🏼🌱🏊🏽‍♂️

Risk, trust, fear, death, beauty, meaning, creativity and what it means to live an adventurous life. These are the subjects I explore this week with @jimmy_chin & @chaivasarhelyi, the dynamic filmmaking duo behind ‘Free Solo’ — a riveting, sweaty-palm-inducing thrill ride portrait of @alexhonnold as he prepares to achieve his lifelong dream to scale the world’s most famous rock, the 3,200 face of El Capitan in Yosemite, WITHOUT A ROPE. It’s an accomplishment the NY Times called “one of the greatest athletic feats of any kind ever — I concur. . . . . . . . .
Today I go behind the veil to discover there is so much more to this amazing story than meets the eye. It was an honor to sit down with Jimmy & Chai - I hope you enjoy the exchange as much as I enjoyed having it. Clickable link in bio. The YouTube version (which features some amazing clips from the movie) can be viewed at

A glimpse of the aftermath. They say it will take 10-20 years before the Santa Monica Mountains — 100,000 acres consumed — look like they did before the Woolsey Fire. But nature’s fury always brings out the best in people. Over the last few weeks I’ve witnessed countless acts of selfless kindness. Extreme composure in the face of tragedy. And even gratitude from those victimized. The best of humanity, friends, neighbors and strangers. It leaves me proud to be a member of this community. And hopeful for humanity. 📷 @pranalens

“It is not difficult to learn to command the body top down by your thoughts and be the master over your own physiology — and with that, bringing happiness, strength and health — or anything that is out of balance back into balance. That is the power of our mind.” Wisdom from @Iceman_Hof. Link to full conversation in bio and viewable on YouTube at 🥶🥶💨🧠✌🏼🌱

Ralph Waldo Emerson said “Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.” In other words, nature reflects our mood. In the aftermath of the Borderline shooting and cataclysmic fires that devastated my community, our shared landscape proves this thought. What was once a lush and wild nature preserve is now a lunar landscape — a perfect mirror for our collective emotional devastation. But swipe left and we find hope. Because nature always finds a way back. Like that solo surviving tree, humanity’s resilience to overcome crisis cannot be underestimated. And in that I find both hope and comfort.

The Iceman Cometh! Today I dive into the deep end of higher consciousness with master of all things cold and breath, Wim @Iceman_Hof. One of the most unique and compelling people I have ever met, Wim will challenge everything you thought you knew about the periphery of human potential. He will empower your mind to unlock superhuman capabilities. And he will leave you rethinking the limits you impose on yourself daily. Clickable link in bio. In addition, the full podcast - as well as a 6-minute standalone video in which Wim takes me through a breath exercise — can be viewed on YouTube at
