Professional runner Nick Symmonds has had two goals in life –– compete at the Olympics and climb Mt. Everest. He’s already capped one of those goals by making two Olympic squads and now he’s turning his attention to scaling the world’s highest peak too. But he isn’t just going after Everest, he’ll be attempting all of the Seven Summits as well, starting with Kilimanjaro. In this video, we join Nick on his way up the tallest mountain in Africa as he learns a lot about himself and the challenge ahead along the way.
