Imagine: You're not in the shape you should be. You've of lost your direction. You've hit a low. That was Lindsay Dare Shoop. Eight years later, she was taking home gold at the Olympics on the US Rowing Team.
Today she tells Joe De Sena, founder & Ceo of Spartan, how she made that transformation and all the things she learned in the process that make up her book, "Better Great Than Never."
“I didn't think I was good enough to play a sport after high school. So I quit sports and spent about two and a half years, kind of wandering aimlessly without them. Gaining weight, grades dropping, kind of socially withdrawing, and then through a random kind of chance moment bumped into the head rowing coach when I was in college, and in that day on that moment, the timing was right. And it was like this. The opportunity arose right when I needed it.”
