Released Tuesday, 15th September 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
Ultrarunning father & son Travis & Mark Macy were excited about the return of  Eco-Challenge Fiji and planned to race - Travis on a younger competitive team, Mark on team "Stray Dogs."  Plans changed after learning 66-year-old endurance racer Mark Macy was facing Alzheimer's.  He’d won the grueling Iditashoe 100-mile snowshoe race and competed in 9 Eco-challenges - but this race would pose a special challenge, but also unique rewards.  Joe De Sena, a veteran endurance racer himself, trades tales with Travis and Mark about eco-challenge and about their last meeting when we interviewed Travis about his book "The Ultra Mindset."

LESSONS
  1. Make time for family
  2. Sometimes the risk of avoiding the challenge is greater than the risks the challenge poses.
