Global adventurer JOHN BEEDE climbed the tallest mountains on all seven continents. This includes summiting Mount Everest. He’s kitesurfed ocean waves three times his height in the South China Sea. He swam with sharks, jumped out of airplanes, and been struck by lightning. He was also trapped in the Indonesian jungle between warring tribes and the world’s largest gold mine. Yet, even with all these larger than life adventures, none of that defines him as a man. What's in The Warrior Challenge... does.
