In this episode, we meet arctic botanist and ultra endurance athlete Amy Breen. Hailing from Alaska, Amy takes us into the world of winter ultra endurance racing. She talks about how she became a fat tire cyclist tackling 100+ mile races, and the remarkable story of the race where she both saved her husband's life and won the big prize.
