UNSTOPPABLE with Kerwin Rae


May 5, 2019

What can running 140 ultra-marathons and the equivalent of 3 trips around the equator teach you about grit, tenacity, and resilience? On this episode of Unstoppable I sit down with athlete Lisa Tamati. In 2009 she became the first Kiwi woman to run 217km non-stop through the hottest desert on Earth, The Death Valley. More people have successfully climbed Mt Everest than have completed this race. Few people know what it means to be unstoppable like Lisa does.
