The World's Okayest Cyclist; Beating Cancer Through Faith and Exercise with Shawn Watson

 

In the fall of 2013, Shawn Watson was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lymphoma. Shawn credits his faith and passion for exercise, specifically cycling for helping him recover from his diagnosis. During our conversation we discussed:

  • How he went from barely being able to walk 300 steps in a day to cycling up to 100 miles.
  • The role his faith has played in his recovery.
  • His thoughts on how anyone can use exercise in their cancer recovery.
  • Why he refers to himself as The world's okayest cyclist.
  • Why it's important to him to build a community and help others.
  • How he got into public speaking by reaching out to the manufacturer of one of the drugs used in his treatment.
  • How he has dealt with people who "don't know what to say."
  • The smartphone apps he uses to track his exercise and keep him motivated.
