One of my favorite quotes is “those who say that something is impossible should get out of the way of those of us who are doing it”. For this episode of Live On Purpose Radio, Dr. Paul interviews Jarom Thurston with special guest Monica Otero from Brazil. Jarom just completed the Badwater Ultramarathon, a grueling 135 mile race that starts in the scorching heat of death valley, and ends at the top of the Whitney Portal (elevation 8,300 ft.). This inspiring story includes ultramarathon participant, Monica, who is a cancer survivor. See the record of this inspiring feat at

If perfection makes nothing impossible then imperfection makes everything possible.
