015 – Race Across America – Perspective from John and Mike

May 22, 2017 twodisableddudes

You’ve heard us talk about our 4-man Team, and 13-member Crew in Race Across America (RAAM). In this episode, we chat with the other two cyclists from Team FARA in RAAM; John Lockwood and Mike Mellott.

Team FARA in Race Across America

John & Mike have both been involved and supportive of many adventures throughout the years and they are always fun to reconnect with. As you’ll hear, since competing in RAAM 2010, both of these dudes have married and started families of their own.


In this episode we discuss our memories from the trip. The laughs, the difficulties, the inspiration, the time Sean poked himself in the eye and had to go to a hospital, the stress of constantly being filmed, the love shown by others in the FA community, the time Sean needed to eat from Taco Bell in order to carry on.


Ultimately we are so thankful that our friends Mike and John decided to go on this crazy adventure with us. We can’t deny that life with a disability is a scary road. It can seem overwhelming and isolating at times. Finding others who willingly share the journey with us is one of the greatest treasures in life.
