Endurance is a word that makes people think of sport, or pushing forward through adversity. Project Echelon is my non-profit and we educate, equip, and empower veterans and their families to heal through physical activity and self discovery. This show serves that mission. How do I train in a healthy way? How do I use that physical outlet to pursue a healthy mind and heal the invisible wounds of the past? We own three things in this life, our mind, body, and story.
