This week we welcome back Josh Milich and Brian Tjersland after their 500 mile journey in support of Mission 22 a community with the goal of putting a stop to the high amount of veteran suicides that unfortunately happen every single day. By running from the Massachussetts National Cemetary all the way down to Arlington National Cemetary, these two raised money and awareness in every single city and state they traveled through.
We chatted with Brian and Josh last February about their lofty plan (Episode #134) and I am so excited to have them back on the show! I’m a huge fan of these two and followed along with their live updates over the adventure and I gotta say, they might be the most positive, calm, go with the flow dudes in the country. With a cause bigger than themselves, seemingly nothing would stop them. Not sore feet, sleepless nights, rain, exhaustion; their minds were set on making it to the finish line no matter what.
In this episode we hear all about the “500 Miles to End Veteran Suicide Project”. What is it like to traverse the East Coast on foot? How do you discover the real “Rules of the Road”? What is it like running into gigantic cities on foot? And what lessons did they learn about themselves, Mission 22, and humanity?
I really hope you enjoy this episode! You can still support Josh and Brian’s project until the end of the year! Really loved chatting guys!
