This is a story about how one man healed himself and used a tragedy and turned it into life purpose. An entrepreneur, author, public speaker, athlete, and philanthropist, David Richman uses the lessons

learned in his life to enrich and inspire others. As a

former sedentary, over-weight, smoker, David knew that he

needed to focus not on what others wanted out of him, but on

what he wanted out of life.

With his first book, Winning in the Middle of the Pack, David discussed how to get more out of ourselves than ever imag-

ined. Now, David shares the interconnected stories of others overcoming obstacles—specifically cancer—in his second

book Cycle of Lives.

OVER THE LAST 15 YEARS, David has completed:

• Over 50 triathlons, including

15 Ironman-distance triathlons

• More than 50 runs longer than

marathon distance

• Several 24-hour runs

• An 85-mile run in Mexico

during the summer

• Four consecutive marathons (104

miles) from Santa Barbara to

Manhattan Beach

• A solo, 5,000 mile bike ride from

California to Florida to New York
