Jacky Hunt-Broersma - 'A Truly Inspirational Runner' - I now run to inspire others to get fit and healthy, especially other amputees, as I am living proof that life goes on after cancer and amputation.
Living the Mountain Life - The mountains decide if you are climbing, running or even walking. So, going into the mountains is a combination of all these kinds of movements and that is what I love. It makes you feel alive and free.

Interview with Hilary Matheson - I know many new runners these days want to jump right in and run a hundred miler, but I also see a lot of new runners burning themselves out by signing up for every race they can get their hands on, instead of focusing on building a solid base first.
Interview with Meg Lewis-Schneider - My approach to training is “train don’t strain”. Listen to your body and don’t get greedy and take more than it’s willing to give. I do this by balancing hard workouts with quality, recovery/easy runs.
Interview with Adell Bridges - "I always like to remember that 'nothing is permanent'. So, you can apply this when you're in a pleasant situation, remembering to take it in and be grateful for it, because it won't be around forever. Or when you're in a challenging situation, to remember that this too shall pass!"
Interview with Anna Frost - There are so many wonderful role models of strong, happy, successful women lining up and dominating at all of the major events. They last more than a few races, we see them consistently perform at a high level because they have healthy eating habits.

Interview with Dani Moreno - To secure a place on Team USA, I basically just had to have a great racing resume, which meant I had to race well consistently! It took a lot of work over the last year and I felt honored to be selected to the team still being very new to the sport.
Interview with Peter Billard - I intend to be still running long after most others have retired to the couch. Doing good so far!

The location is stunning, La Palma is the lesser-known island in the Canaries but so beautiful. The course itself is very hard, especially for a normal guy like me.
Runner Interview: Florens von der Decken - It’s no shame at all to walk the steeper climbs from time to time. It’s actually quite clever and you can soak in the beauty of nature...

Training is a lifestyle, not a means to an end. I don’t follow any plans, I don’t use a GPS watch, and I don’t track my stats. In training I follow a basic guideline: stay dynamic.
Be prepared and be ready for an adventure… and have a little extra time on your hands when you head out with me.
"The other big adventure was running up a 14er with Jenn Shelton, drinking too much beer and then booking a trip to Chamonix...."
In September I ran solo across Kyrgyzstan. It was a distance of about 950km, carrying all of my 12kg of equipment in a backpack. I aimed to use ancient nomad trails to cross the Tien Shan mountains on a route that had never before been run, relying on yurt-dwelling nomads for assistance in the wild.
Runner Interview: Alastair Dixon - I have quite a competitive mindset, so when I see fast results, I jump at the opportunity to challenge myself further.
