This TEDxSantaCruz talk is one of 16 surrounding our theme of "Open" at the second full-day TEDxSantaCruz event held September 15, 2012 at the Cabrillo College Crocker Theater in Aptos, CA (Santa Cruz County). http://www.tedxsantacruz.org/
Terri Schneider's lifetime involvement in extreme endurance sports reflects her curiosity, zeal and insatiable appetite to experience new cultures and landscapes while pushing her physical and mental limits. Her passion is to share those experiences with others as a coach, consultant, writer and speaker. As a world-class professional triathlete for ten years then an adventure racer and ultra runner, she has raced, climbed and explored in over 70 countries—the more remote and challenging the location, the more enticing. Terri has her M.A. in Sports Psychology and, her B.S. in Exercise Physiology. She is author of Triathlon Revolution: Training, Technique and Inspiration, co-author of Triathlete's Guide to Mental Training, has contributed to two additional books and is now working on her next book. In the Fall of 2011 she lead 4-person Expedition Bhutan on a never-been-done crossing of the country of Bhutan trekking and mountain biking, while they shot a documentary film of their journey (thehappiestplacefilm.com). Terri returned to Bhutan in 2012 to live and volunteer with the Bhutan Olympic Committee and her work supporting Youth and Olympic Sports in Bhutan continues today.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
