Podcast Episode 16: Bill Bucklew (Going Farther in the Face of Parkinson’s)

Listen now.

As the saying goes, when life gives you lemons, make yourself a glass of lemonade and then sip it while walking from one end of the United States to the other while raising awareness for Parkinson’s Disease.

Our guest Bill Bucklew, waxes philosophic as he shares his journey through a diagnosis of young-onset Parkinsons in his early 40s. Not one to let it slow him down, it launched a series of finishes from Ironman Wisconsin, a stroll from Georgia to California, and has put him in-line to earn his 6-stars of the Abbot World Marathon Majors.

This is a conversation that I think will stay with me for the rest of my life. Bill is a super inspiring guy – a totally unassuming savage as you will see – I think you’re going to love hearing his words and his story.
