Prior to December 2018, no individual had ever crossed the landmass of Antarctica alone, without support and completely human powered. Yet, Colin O'Brady was determined to do just that, even if, ten years earlier, an accident left him in doubt that he'd ever walk again normally. Enduring sub-zero temperatures for two months while pulling a sled that initially weighed 375 pounds, O'Brady was also in a head-to-head battle with British polar explorer Captain Louis Rudd—also striving to be "the first." Reflecting on the entire journey, O'Brady reveals here how anyone can overcome immense obstacles, and discover what matters most.
