Co-Host Hillary Allen asks Jason the obvious question, "Why go for 100 FKTs?"
"It's been a wild journey; in the works for two, going on three years. I had a wild 2020; I did 60 FKTs last year."
"The game gets harder the more you play it. I had to learn new skills, get more creative, become better."
How do you find the time to do all this?
"If you know Ironman training, you know I was used a lifestyle of constant movement."
"I was the kid who struggled to fall in line. Now I'm a poor employee but a great teacher - I'm not good at compliance but great connecting with the kids. The same with FKTs - I can see the possibilities, and dedicate myself to doing it."
Besides being extremely bold and energetic, Jason is very intelligent and insightful - you'll appreciate this conversation!
