In case you haven’t seen it yet, go watch Jason and my team (Team BendRacing) on Eco Challenge streaming NOW on Amazon Prime. You will not regret it. It is such a fun show to watch, especially for those who really struggle to understand what we do out there for days on end.
Many have been asking me if it is hard for me to watch. And the simple and quick answer is yes, of course! I would be lying if I said otherwise. However, at the time Jason left I was 2 weeks postpartum, with a very tiny Revel to feed constantly and a 2.5 year old Max to run after. Also, when I get over my FOMO, I am extremely proud of the team and am so grateful for what Eco Challenge is doing for this amazing sport that I love so much.
All facets of Adventure Racing lights up my world. The training, the competing, the teamwork, the relationships, the highs, the lows, the limits and so on. It’s all incredible. And not to mention, it brings awareness to how important it is to preserve and protect this amazing planet we live on. I can’t wait for racing to open back up again and have already applied for Eco 2021:)
So, if you haven’t already, watch it. Oh, and have a box of kleenex handy. In all most every episode I was tearing up, especially episode 7. That one rocked me for days.
