    Amy and Daniel - TAR 21



    Name: Amy Purdy (Amy is a double amputee)

    Age: 32

    Hometown: Summit County, Co.

    Connection to your teammate: Dating

    Current occupation: Motivational Speaker/Snowboarder

    Describe what you do: I co-founded an action sports organization called Adaptive Action Sports with Daniel for people with physical disabilities. Iím a competitive snowboarder and recently have taken on a career as a motivational speaker.

    Favorite hobbies: Snowboarding, road trips with Daniel and camping with friends.

    3 words to describe you: Motivated, fun and adventurous.

    What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Learning to walk again comfortably!! It was not an easy feat but now I donít think twice. Everything else is just a bonus!

    What famous person reminds you of yourself? Amelia Earhart because she was strong, adventurous and took risks.

    What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Daniel has had random people confuse him with pro FMX race Todd Potter. I think he looks like him too but Danielís cuter. Really, Daniel has a heart and personality all his own.

    What scares you most about traveling? Being so far away from home and something happens to me or a family member and we canít reach each other in time.

    What excites you most about traveling? Seeing all the world has to offer, experiencing other cultures and having stories to tell!

    Biggest challenge you and your teammate will face on The Race together: Communication is our biggest challenge at times. If we argue, sometimes it can be about how we are arguing instead of the actual problem.

    Pet peeve about your teammate: He likes to walk around the house wearing one sock on his foot and one sock off! I donít know why he does it but he seems to love it and it always makes me laugh.

    What country and place would you most like to visit and why? There are so many! Japan, Nepal, Austria. All have amazing cultures and I would love to snowboard in Japan!

    What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Our work with our organization can take over at times. I think The Race will give us the opportunity for just the two of us to work together outside of the organization and it may even give us the opportunity to communicate and support each other better!

    I hope they're better than Peter and Sarah. Sarah used her leg to get sympathy so they could get some advantage over the other teams at times, such as being let on a flight earlier or whatever. It's not dumb, but I hated it. I hope these two don't do that.

    I really liked this team. Sorry to see them out so soon. I hate when teams are eliminated due to the incompetence of taxi drivers.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    I liked them, too. Definitely better than Peter and Sarah, who I mentioned. Too bad they couldn't last as long.
