The World’s Toughest Mudder, Peak Death Racer, Iron woman, Stefanie Bishop is a guest of OG CHAT
Stefanie Bishop, OG CHAT BEHIND CLOSED DOORS EPISODE 4. A native New Yorker and the embodiment of adventure seeker, Stefanie competes, explores, and trains all over the globe. She embraces her passions for adventure, ultra-endurance racing and training with a massive smile and all of her heart. Stefanie has a diverse athletic background, competing and excelling in various athletics from a very young age, ranging from soccer to fencing and lacrosse. She thrives on being challenged, which led her triathlon in 2005. Stefanie spent many years competing in triathlons, ranging from sprint to Ironman distances, and even competed at the Long Course Age Group World Championship. Stefanie began to flourish as an athlete upon discovering ultra-endurance sports. In 2010, she jumped at the opportunity to compete at a Peak Death Race - a race of unknown length and unknown tasks, lasting from approximately one to three days, testing athletes both physically and mentally. After becoming the overall champion 18 hours after her first Death Race, she realized that is what fueled her passion. Her love of these types of adventure competitions was apparent; she was the only athlete seen smiling constantly throughout the race. Stefanie went on to complete three more Death Races, lasting up to 65 hours in length, becoming the female champion twice and finishing in the top 10.

Stefanie Bishop - One Tough Mudder, actually, the Toughest!
The Natural Running Network Live
Stefanie Bishop literally came out of nowhere to clinch the win at The World’s Toughest Mudder in 2016. Few people knew who she was but in quick time, all learned she was a force to reckon with. Putting in 85 miles with time to walk a lap which could easily have resulted in 90 miles, she handily disassembled the field of competitors. An adventure racer at heart, Steff is one tough mudder when it comes to any event that takes you up to and beyond 24 hours. Richard Diaz caught up with her at the Toughest Mudder season opener in LA and in this interview Steff shares her story.

Dirt in Your Skirt - The Podcast
Stefanie Bishop always grew up active from the time she could crawl. She competed in a number of different sports growing up, but it wasn't until 2009 when she read a New York Times article that would really spark something new in her life. That New York Times article was about the Death Race. In this week's episode of the podcast, Bishop talks about growing up, being recruited to gymnastics from a birthday party, how winning the Death Race turned into a job in finance, and more. She talks about why she prefers adventure racing and other extreme endurance events to short distance courses. Finally, talks about the importance of community in long events. Bishop recently won the 2016 World's Toughest Mudder and to many this was their first introduction to the endurance athlete. In our podcast, she talks about how she got into the obstacle racing world in 2010 then took a break for a few years but always had WTM on her radar.

It's a tough subject, but someone's gotta talk about it... yes, those dreaded three letters. D. N. F. Did Not Finish. In this episode, Jody and David talk all things DNF as they introduce the first (and possibly last) ever Bad Boy Running guest, ultra-athlete Stefanie Bishop. Here's what we got up to: Jody confesses to doing something he’s never done before… and David shows absolutely no sympathy towards him (honestly, not a word of support) The chaps drop the bombshell that the actually have a guest… introducing the incredible extreme racing champion and Death Race veteran Stefanie Bishop Stefanie explains her experience of running the first winter Death Race, shooting 9mms and tackling Olympic wrestlers… as well as the slightly lacking ‘motivational’ speeches by the organiser to help you through it Stefanie ponders which is more difficult: sat in a cold pond for hours with hypothermia or drinking 4 litres of milk? Stefanie reveals the quality of the reward for completing Death Races (honestly, it’s worth spending hours in a pond with hypothermia for…) David recalls the first time he met Stef at a race… and it wasn’t pretty (for a very good reason) Why Stef had to be forced to DNF and why less clothes is often better (or not, as we discover) Stef reveals the frankly RIDICULOUS amount of time she spent trying to overcome one obstacle during a race (no, really you won’t believe this) David accidentally reveals the names of two people in a relationship no-one is supposed to know about ALERT, ALERT… a genuinely good idea actually features on the show!

Episode 120 - Before Amelia. Before Pak. Before Olof Dallner, Shelly Koenig, or Mark Webb. There was Stefanie Bishop. Stefanie was the overall winner of the Peak Races Winter Snowshoe "Death Division" in March of 2010. A few months later it was renamed the Death Race, and she was the first female finisher for the Summer version. (Joe Decker was the first male and overall winner). Much like another endurance champ, Mark Jones, Stefanie would also go on to complete the 2nd ever Spartan Race in Brooklyn, NY and the first ever Tough Mudder in Pennsylvania, all in 2010. In this interview Matt talks to Stefanie about those early adventurous beginnings, why she disappeared for a couple of years, and why she’s back. She just received another skull at the Mexico Death Race and then won the brand new Gauntlet in Macon, Georgia, the very next weekend. We also get her first hand account of this year’s Winter Tough Guy and why it was her first DNF. Oh, and they talk about ice cream. You also may hear Matt’s children in the background as this interview was recorded in his home office. Today’s episode is sponsored by: Down and Dirty Obstacle Race and Rugged Maniac. Show Notes: Report from the 2010 Summer Death Race Sufferfest clip-What near death looks like from this past Winter Tough Guy. Gauntlet Recap by Devin Cas
