"There is Dotsie Bausch, a seven-time U.S. national cycling champion who, at 39, was the oldest cyclist to ever qualify for the Olympics, not to mention return home with a silver medal. There is Patrik Baboumian, the former Germany’s Strongest Man who holds multiple world records, including lifting a staggering 1,213 pounds over his head. There is one of the greatest ultramarathoners of all time, Scott Jurek, who ran the Appalachian trail in 46 days, eight hours, and seven minutes—three hours faster than anyone else at the time, and months shorter than the average hiker. There are Roman gladiators, gorillas, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, all of whom have two things in common: superpower strength, and a plant-based diet.ts+Consciousness"
