Today’s podcast is about our super athlete friend Risa August and her new book, “The Road Unpaved.” We first met Risa in 2019 when she came to the Pituitary World News/UCSF patient gathering. We chatted about her experience and and her plans to ride her bike from Canada to Mexico.
I was instantly interested and impressed with her energy and desire to get involved. I also remember thinking that day we met how hard it must have been for her to travel from Colorado to come to the conference in San Francisco with full-blown, uncontrolled acromegaly. She wanted to make a difference, she told me, and use her talents and efforts to talk about pituitary diseases to increase awareness. It was music to my ears! “I’m in,” I immediately told myself. So, we published her articles and podcasts. We followed her herculean effort to ride 1845-plus miles to get from Canada to Mexico on the Pacific Coast Highway, which, as you can imagine, is no picnic for anyone, let alone if you are fighting acromegaly symptoms. It is downright amazing she did it at all. Now, she has written a book about her experience with acromegaly, the ride, and life.
