Team 8OARS Pre-Interview (2:50)
There are so many amazing people in the world when you take the time to stop and listen! I am always so surprised by the people who are occupying the same space as me.

Like this team of women who have decided to take on the Seventy48 Challenge. I intercepted them outside of a restaurant the evening before race start when I noticed that they were wearing matching outfits (Nuu-Muu's) 

Team member's ages range from 55 years to 74 years old and they are world record holders and champions, bakers, small business owners- Sunrise Coffee in Port Townsend, and the Whittakers (yes, that Whittakers). Listen for 3 minutes and laugh along with this good spirited group. 

Here's to hoping we catch them at the finish line in Port Townsend to hear how it all goes down.
