On Episode 310 of CrossFit Radio, host Justin Judkins interviewed Ian Wittenber about his epic motorcycle trip through Latin America with Pat Sherwood. This episode was webcast on Dec. 26, 2013.
1:57 Wittenber and Sherwood recently returned from a motorcycle adventure that took them from the United States to Santiago, Chile. Wittenber described some of the highs and lows and explained what it was like to meet so many cool people from the CrossFit community in Latin America. Wittenber talked about how the pair found it difficult to hit workouts after being on bikes all day long, but they persevered even when they couldn’t find a gym, and he said he’ll use the mental strength he gained from the challenge in future workouts. Wittenber detailed his nutrition over the course of more than three months on the road—think cookies for lunch in the direst circumstances—and explained how they constantly received unexpected assistance in foreign countries. Finally, he explained what happened to their hard-ridden motorcycles and how his life has changed since he returned.
