This amazing story is brought to 303 by Colorado's Shelby Katz - mountain biker, triathlete, past 303 Contributor, bike thief slayer, and general excellent citizen. Shelby is one of the original members of the Bird's Eye View Project (BEVP) Team, and will be traveling to Alaska in 2017 to help with the stunts. . .
Being able to run for 100 miles (or more), or climbing every 14’er in Colorado without a break, to me, is crazy, but to that athlete, it gives them joy, accomplishment, the ability to say, yes, I can. Whatever the motivation, insight into an endurance athlete is not all that easy to figure out, but with Ryan Parrott, AKA the Birdman, it’s a bit easier because his motivation is on others in need.
