I had the opportunity this month to head out to Nevada & Arizona to photo document 12, 4 person teams navigating, trekking, kayaking, mountain biking and climbing 300 miles through the desert. When the word athlete is spoken it's this kind of person that fits the bill. Every team member had all the ingredients that make up a true champion, perseverance, attitude, mental strength, physical strength and a caring and passionate attitude towards their teammates. Take this kind of person out of the Adventure Race and put them in any other facet of life and they will succeed beyond all expectations.
A big thank you to Robert Finlay for giving me this opportunity and exposing me to such an awesome group of amazing people.
