The Gear Show with Lisa Gerber
About This Show
Stories of achievement and creativity from the outdoors to help you gear up mentally and/or physically for your next big leap - for those of us who aspire to something more, and struggle daily with balancing ambition with happiness.
More than the specific gear or activity, the discussions involve pushing ourselves to be better. To do so, we have to tackle fear, our monkey brain. We have to set ourselves up for success and to make ideas happen. But most of all, we have to be able to adjust when life takes us on a different path than our dreams.
Listen, learn, and lets gear up for what’s next:Read more »

56: Mark Gibson on Pursuing Curiosity
6 days ago
There has to be a certain kind of crazy to do some of the things Mark Gibson has taken on. He’s done things like skateboarded from capital to capital (Washington DC to Ottawa, Canada) with his son. He ran 276 miles across the state of Pennsylvania from Pittsburgh to Philadelphia in (ten days - averaging over a marathon a day). He’s run the rim to rim to rim in the Grand Canyon and a 100-mile run along the entire length of the Florida Keys from Key Largo to Key West straight through) to name a few. Mark is formally a member of the British National Gymnastics Team. He went on to become assistant coach to the U.S. Junior Olympic Team in Colorado Springs and now, teaches gymnastics to kids at his own gymnastics center in Pennsylvania. He is a keynote speaker and author of "Going For It” and “It’s Not About What You Can’t Do. It’s About What You Can’t Do Yet.” This isn’t necessarily to inspire you to concoct some strange thing to take on. It’s to inspire you hopefully to do the thing you want to do, whether you are 100 percent prepared or not, whether the time is right or not, whether you might fail or not. Mark quit his job one month before his son was born to launch his speaking and writing career. He has a lot to share: Links Mark learning to ride the Unicycle Where to Find Mark: highbarperformance.com Let’s listen in gear up for what’s next.
