Description

Burned out from a taxing career in law enforcement, today’s guest found freedom on a bike and quickly made incredible strides as a competitive cyclist. Then it all — quite literally, came crashing down. Lucky for her, she wasn’t afraid of an uphill battle.


Leah Goldstein is best known for being the first woman to win the overall solo division of the Race Across America. But it’s what came before and after her success, that reveals what she is truly made of. 


Gil is on the edge of his seat as Leah recounts her experiences as a bullied little girl, the events that motivated her to pursue competitive sports, a dangerous career as an Israeli Commando instructor, and ultimately, what keeps her riding to this day.
