Episode 120 - Before Amelia. Before Pak. Before Olof Dallner, Shelly Koenig, or Mark Webb. There was Stefanie Bishop. Stefanie was the overall winner of the Peak Races Winter Snowshoe "Death Division" in March of 2010. A few months later it was renamed the Death Race, and she was the first female finisher for the Summer version. (Joe Decker was the first male and overall winner).
In this interview Matt talks to Stefanie about those early adventurous beginnings, why she disappeared for a couple of years, and why she’s back. She just received another skull at the Mexico Death Race and then won the brand new Gauntlet in Macon, Georgia, the very next weekend. We also get her first hand account of this year’s Winter Tough Guy and why it was her first DNF. Oh, and they talk about ice cream.
You also may hear Matt’s children in the background as this interview was recorded in his home office.
