Tom Dooley delivers life lessons and learnings few have the privilege to experience, let alone hear. Host Ric Brutocao brings out these lessons in this episode. As a double Olympiad Dooley earned a spot on the U.S. Olympic team in 1968 in Mexico City and again, in 1972, in Munich, Germany: Two especially historic Olympics, for very different reasons. Racewalking is an endurance sport. Interestingly, the self-discipline, humility, insights and lessons one gains from training for any athletic adventure—especially for elite-level endurance racing—spills over into every aspect of one’s life, even business and work. Few athletes are also good teachers.  Tom Dooley is both great athlete and great teacher, as many of his students will attest. Not only was he a high school history teacher and record-breaking racewalker athlete, he also served for 25 years as National Coach for the Leukemia and Lymphoma’s Team in Training program.
