Here's How You Train for One of the Hardest Endurance Races in the World



Patrick Sweeney is a world-class athlete and adventure-seeker who is drawn to extremes. This week he is preparing to race the longest, coldest ultra endurance event in the world, the Iditarod Trail Invitational. Filming himself every step of the way, Patrick breaks down how he prepares both mentally and physically for a 350-mile fat bike race across -40 degree Alaskan forests, mountains and tundra totally unsupported.
