Olander said, “I still can’t believe I did it. The race was just a tiny fraction of the experience…In the past 1.5 years, I’ve learned how to Mountain Bike, Cycle, and Swim (properly), not to mention meeting all the incredible people that I now have in my life because of these sports.

I couldn’t have done it without the amazing team of people who supported me over the past year. They pushed me through the setbacks and encouraged me to keep chugging along.”
