The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

It’s not about the idea, it’s about the people behind the idea who can make it happen. That’s the theme of today’s StartanUp Endurance Series episode, where host Johnny Waite interviews Jody Bragger, Jodie Gauld and Gabriel Ghiglione, who together, ran across Tajikstan as part of a friendly bet.  The bet started in the dead of winter, where the crew picked a location on a map (blindfolded) and committed to running wherever their finger landed.  The end result was a cross-country adventure that was made into a documentary, Running the Roof.  In this episode you’ll learn: 


-The importance of the team you surround yourself with 

-Commitment: how to pick a date, or in this case, a country, and commit to the adventure that lies ahead

-Why Tajikstan and what dangers did they encounter along the crew’s trip?

-The crew’s running plans for the next 2 years
