4. What lessons did you learn from your experience?
Erin: "I learned that I pack way too much stuff. I love to be prepared for anything while traveling, but if we were to do the Race again, we would literally pack 25-percent of what we brought this time. Running with 25 pounds strapped to your back is not conducive to winning a race."
Joslyn: "I learned so many lessons, both practical travel lessons and bigger-picture life lessons. I've basically perfected the ability to book an airline ticket and get the best seat possible, while also becoming best friends with the ticket agent. (They are always the best!)
More importantly, though, this experience just reinstated my belief in the idea that life is short and if there are adventures you want to have, people you want to meet, and things you want to do—even scary things—you just have to make them happen. And you really have to harness every awesome opportunity that comes your way."
