Welcome to Part 2 of Episode 25 of the THINKING Podcast! Geoff sits down with Brianna Stubbs, a British rower who has achieved numerous accomplishments, including being the youngest person ever to cross the English Channel in a rowing boat...at age 12. Not only is Brianna a full-time athlete who won Great Britain a gold medal at the 2016 World Rowing Championships, but she also studied rigorously at the prestigious Oxford University. She went on to become a respected researcher in the space of ketones, an alternate energy source for our bodies that burns fat instead of glucose. Geoff and Brianna discuss her athletic and academic background, where Brianna shares how she managed her formidable lifestyle. She once was finishing up a science lab at school when she remembered it was the time she was supposed to be at the gym. Instead of giving up and standing by idly, she started doing squats in the middle of the class whilst monitoring a rat heart. Now that's dedication!
