Introduction to the Outdoors
My mom, she didn’t like me being inside a lot of time and we always lived out in the sticks. So I spent a lot of time outside by myself. I loved being outdoors as a kid. There was no place I’d rather be. And then, I was in the military and I was in a jungle warfare unit. We spent almost all of our time outside. And then I became a mountain biker and I’ve been a mountain biker ever since.
Things we talked about
“Go further. You’re stronger than you think you are.“
“I think connecting is the reason I’m in this game. I finally realized that we would never have a pill or a genetic therapy that would be more beneficial to human health and just getting outside a little bit, connecting with nature. And you know, there’s solid research out there that just getting outside has positive benefits for people above and beyond just exercise in a lot of ways. We’re animals, we evolved to move in nature and be in nature. I’m probably preaching to the choir with your audience. But I would just encourage people to get outside, connect with nature, and take care of it.“
