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."
