Do you have a survivor's instinct?

Would you step up when the chips are down and your life was on the line? Or would you crumble into a sobbing, pathetic mess like a triathlete who lost their left shoe in transition?

On this episode, the guys speak with Joe Oldendorf - a true survivor.

Joe went out for 20 mile long run on a remote trail in his home of Washington State and fell and broke his leg after 12 miles. His injury was so severe he was unable to walk.

Fortunately, he had his phone. Unfortunately, there was no signal.

So, he crawled for 12 hours to get within phone signal range so he could call 911. 12 hours!

David speaks to Joe about his experience and what kept him going for that amount of time with his ankle detached from his tibia. (Urgh!)

This is properly inspiring.
