This podcast is so great, we split it into 2 parts! We had the pleasure of sitting down with NASCAR Champion & current NASCAR Hall of Fame Nominee, Bobby Labonte and his wife, former professional cyclist, Kristin Labonte. This podcast has a little something for everyone from stories of their NASCAR & Cycling careers to their awesome adventures hunting & fishing. Part 1 includes the story of how they met, how they are both still involved in the sports they love and the mental side to being a professional athlete. We dive a little bit into their experiences in the outdoors but you will have to tune into part 2 for their epic adventures of hunting & fishing including Kristin's first hunt in Alaska, Bobby's hunts in Saskatchewan and helping the RMEF tag baby elk calves.
