Episode 29: USA – The Survival Story of Danelle Ballengee

Brianna tells Dyson the harrowing story of Danelle Ballengee, a multidisciplinary endurance athlete and 6-time US Athlete of the Year. Thanks to her superhuman willpower and her hero pup, Taz, Danelle survives 56 hours in the uncharted terrain of the Amasa Back Trail in Moab, Utah. John Marshall, Grand County Search and Rescue, put it best: “I learned from the get-go that this woman was as hard as nails. They say to be a great adventure athlete, first and foremost, you have to be hard to kill. Danelle was hard to kill.”
