Dierdre Wolownick

Today's guest is Dierdre Wolownick. What first captures many people’s attention is the fact that Dierdre is mother to world-renowned climber Alex Honnold, but that just scratches the surface of this woman’s story. She’s a mother to two athletic and activist children, a teacher, a writer, an artist, a conductor, a runner and a climber, to name but a few of her many identities. Dierdre’s book, The Sharp End of Life, is a wonderful account of a life being lived to its fullest, and perhaps accelerating in vigor with age.
