There are several reasons for which I want to help in this race. The first one is that I want to see how my brothers are doing. Secondly, I would like to become a Navy SEAL, but the only way to do so is to pass BUD/S, and this experience will show me what happens when your body and mind is put to the limit.
I want to know how my brothers are doing during the race. If I were sitting at my house on the couch watching TV, I would have absolutely no idea whatsoever as to what is going on. On the other hand, if I am over there being DJ and choosing music for the team, I both know what is going on, and I am helping my brothers go through this amazing test of strength, endurance and motivation.
In addition to knowing what is going on, I wish to know what happens to your body and mind when it is put to the limit. During RAAM, a rider encounters obliterating heat, numbing cold, and very high winds. Furthermore, a rider racing solo has to choose whether it is worth it or not to continue in the race. Fortunately for me, my brothers chose not to race solo, but when you are passing the BUD/S, you are the only one who can fight your way out of it. This experience will show me how bad things can get, and how willpower is enough to make you cross the finish line.
I want to be part of this team because I want to be empiricised and know how the race is going first hand. BUD/S is probably the most emotionally and physically draining thing a human can go through. Right behind it is doing RAAM in solo. For that matter, I will need all the experience I can to make my dream come true. Obviously I will not be the one to be exposed to this, but I want to be there to help my brothers get through it themselves, and who knows, maybe in a few years you will see me graduate BUD/S and become a Navy SEAL.
