Recommended Posts

amy_daniel_480x610.jpg

Name: Amy Purdy (Amy is a double amputee)

Age: 32

Hometown: Summit County, Co.

Connection to your teammate: Dating

Current occupation: Motivational Speaker/Snowboarder

Describe what you do: I co-founded an action sports organization called Adaptive Action Sports with Daniel for people with physical disabilities. I’m a competitive snowboarder and recently have taken on a career as a motivational speaker.

Favorite hobbies: Snowboarding, road trips with Daniel and camping with friends.

3 words to describe you: Motivated, fun and adventurous.

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Learning to walk again comfortably!! It was not an easy feat but now I don’t think twice. Everything else is just a bonus!

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Amelia Earhart because she was strong, adventurous and took risks.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Daniel has had random people confuse him with pro FMX race Todd Potter. I think he looks like him too but Daniel’s cuter. Really, Daniel has a heart and personality all his own.

What scares you most about traveling? Being so far away from home and something happens to me or a family member and we can’t reach each other in time.

What excites you most about traveling? Seeing all the world has to offer, experiencing other cultures and having stories to tell!

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Communication is our biggest challenge at times. If we argue, sometimes it can be about how we are arguing instead of the actual problem.

Pet peeve about your teammate: He likes to walk around the house wearing one sock on his foot and one sock off! I don’t know why he does it but he seems to love it and it always makes me laugh.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? There are so many! Japan, Nepal, Austria. All have amazing cultures and I would love to snowboard in Japan!

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Our work with our organization can take over at times. I think The Race will give us the opportunity for just the two of us to work together outside of the organization and it may even give us the opportunity to communicate and support each other better!

Name: Daniel Gale

What scares you most about traveling? Language barriers.

What excites you most about traveling? Stepping out of the box, learning new cultures and meeting new people.

Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Managing time and money.

Pet peeve about your teammate: She made her legs taller so now she is taller than me

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Africa, Thailand, Greece and Japan. I want to witness their unique cultures.

Man, I know right! When it's that close AND 2 million is at stake, don't be that nice. I like them though and I hope they make it far.

1st Impression: Impressive, Inspiring, too nice/naive for their own good (hope it does not change them for the rest of the race).

I'm really sorry to see them eliminated. What rotten luck to get a bad taxi.
