“And I think if it wasn’t for my faith, and a little bit of heightened reality and belief in myself, I would have never done the things that I’ve been able to accomplish. So, I’m really trying to encourage people that anything is possible if you’re willing to do the work.”

“And sometimes putting yourself out there, taking risks, risking looking ridiculous and failing and falling on your face — these are the kind of chances that you have to take. And I really believe that anything is possible, and I’m living proof of that.

“But you know, after I tore my knee, everyone else was worried that we were going to shut down the production and that I was going to have a surgery, and Mikael was like, ‘No, this is what it’s about. We have to go through all the pain and the suffering.'”

“I never really even knew anything about adventure racing. And also to know that Mickael, who I knew to be one of the most selfish guys in the world in his pursuit of achieving his ultimate goal of winning the world championship, did the most selfless thing by sacrificing the race and his dream to save Arthur, even though he wasn’t really a dog person, it just kind of happened.”

“He realized afterward, just sitting in the street, thinking ‘Oh my god, I actually did this. What am I going to do now?’”
