My mind has been on trails after our camping trip to Jasper a few weeks ago. I went out to the river valley last week to run. And I am constantly dreaming of signing up for an ultra trail race next summer.
I’ve mentioned my awe of Kilian Jornet, the Spanish trail running and ski mountaineering phenomenon with mesmerizing running style. Trail Running magazine has an excerpt from his book, Run or Die, due out in July. Completely inspiring.
“Winning isn’t about finishing in first place. It isn’t about beating the others. It is about overcoming yourself. Overcoming your body, your limitations, and your fears. Winning means surpassing yourself and turning your dreams into reality.”
– Kilian Jornet
