In this episode of the Bike Tour Adventures Podcast, I have a chance to speak with Leah Goldstein as she shares her journey with the listeners. From world kickboxing champion to working as an Israeli Special Forces Instructor, Leah has also been a national level duathlete, professional bike races and motivational speaker. As a 3 time Race Across America participant, Leah this year finished first overall in what can safely be described as one of the toughest bike races in the world.
