Hey monkiis,

I am psyched to welcome the Wildman Brad Kearns (@bradkearns1) to the show. Brad is the host of the Get Over Yourself Podcast and lives a well-examined, wild life. He is a New York Times bestselling author, Guinness World Record setting professional Speedgolfer, #3 world-ranked Masters age 55-59 track&field high jumper, and former national champion and #3 world-ranked professional triathlete. He has written twenty books on diet, health, peak performance, and ancestral living, and is a popular speaker, retreat host, and face of the Primal Blueprint online multimedia educational courses. In 2017, The Keto Reset Diet became a New York Times bestseller, and briefly ranked as the #1 overall bestselling book on amazon.com.

In 2018, Brad broke the Guinness World Record for the fastest single hole of golf ever played (minimum hole length of 500 yards). Playing with a single club (3-wood) and sprinting full speed between shots, Brad played a 503-yard hole in 1 minute, 38 seconds, scoring a birdie four. Here is a detailed account of how he did it, and why it’s important to maintain passion and competitive intensity throughout life.

Brad is 4-time top-20 finisher in the World Professional Speedgolf Championships. He placed third in the 2017 California Professional Speedgolf Championships, shooting 78 on a championship course in 47 minutes for a Speedgolf score (adding together strokes and minutes) of 125.

Brad is an avid high jumper and sprinter. In February 2020, competing in the high jump in the Masters age 55-59 division, he cleared 5’0″ (1.52m), which ranked him #1 in the USA and #3 in the world. His 400-meter time of 1:04.97 ranked him #3 in the USA. In 2016 at age 51, Brad high jumped 5’5″ (1.65m) at a practice session, exceeding the All-American standard. At age 50, he ran a 400-meter time trial in 59.8–running in the 50s in his 50s!

During his nine-year career as a triathlete, Kearns was one of the world’s top ranked professionals, amassing 30 wins worldwide on the pro circuit. Career highlights include a remarkable streak of seven victories in a row (’91-’92), a world duathlon series championship, two national triathlon championships, and a #3 world ranking in 1991. Kearns is the last American professional male to place in the top-5 in the ITU World Olympic Distance Championships (1992) and still holds the Hawaii Ironman 24&under age division American record at 8:57 (1989).

In other words, he's a Wildman!
