A Mile at a Time: It's All Good Training with Travis and Mark Macy

Life on Repeat: A Dementia Caregiver Podcast

This is a special episode with two participants, father and son, of the Amazon Original World's Toughest Race: Eco Challenge Fiji. Mark and Travis Macy have life-long experience training and participating in Eco-Challenges all over the world and are intimately familiar with uncertainty and resiliency.

You will appreciate hearing their perspective on Mark's Alzheimer's diagnosis and how their family is moving through this together. Mark talks openly about the importance of not hiding his diagnosis and the value in talking and sharing about it.

The cross-over of skills needed to master surviving challenging environments while pushing ones body/mind/spirit to its limits and navigating life with Alzheimer's are not to be lost on their journey. Some advice:

  • Make it a team thing
  • Stay engaged
  • Go as fast as we can and as slow as we must

Travis and Mark are co-authors of the upcoming book: A Mile at a Time, which is about the experience of the Eco-Challenge race and of the bond Mark and Travis share. The book releases on March 14, 2023 and is available for pre-order now wherever books are sold:
