In this episode, I had the pleasure of getting to know David Richman and learning about his new book Cycle of Lives. This book describes David’s solo six-week, 5,000-mile cross-country bike ride from L.A. to Florida to N.Y….to meet individuals he had been interviewing over the last year regarding the life-altering nature of cancer. I’m so honored to have David in the podcast to hear about how his journey started, where he’s headed, and all of the individuals he’s impacted through story sharing along the way.
David is an author, public speaker, philanthropist, and endurance athlete whose mission is to form more meaningful human connections through storytelling. In his first book, Winning in the Middle of the Pack, he discussed how to get more out of ourselves than ever imagined. With Cycle of Lives, David shares the interconnected stories of people overcoming trauma and delves deeply into their emotional journeys with cancer. He continues to do Ironman triathlons and a wide range of endurance athletic events, having recently completed a solo 4,700-mile bike ride. He is married, lives in Southern Nevada, and has twins who are in college.
