Hi Everyone,

I hope your running is going strong and well.  This year marked the 10 year anniversary of my Born To Run adventure to the Copper Canyon.  In honor of this, I was invited to visit Oaxaca Mexico this past August for a 3 day run adventure.  The purpose of this was to explore the Oaxaca region, running from town to town.  This is a lawless state that operates independent of the Mexican government, with a focus on eco-tourism and harmony.

We ran 100k within the 3 day adventure and I wanted to share this short film documenting our run.


Secondly, I wanted to share this great podcast from Ultrarunner Podcast, interviewing one of my athletes Meredith Edwards AKA Merejune.  She came in second at UTMB - TDS.  This is one of the better podcasts I have heard and sheds light into Merejune's training and life here in Jackson Hole, and her pursuit of her Cool Impossible.

Mierejune Podcast - Skimo, Trail Running, and Massive Amounts of Vert

I hope you enjoy.

Good to know, I hope that's sooner rather than later. Let us know when you come and where about you'll be. Will you run a workshop? That could be a nice thing to do here.

Hi Luciana - would love to visit, someday soon hopefully.  I have a new film project brewing that might help me get there one day.
