We bring you a Dispatch from beautiful Boulder. We meditate and hit the trails with professional ultra runner Timothy Olson and his run family in Boulder, Colo., for the kickoff to a new monthly community run hosted at the Boulder Adventure Lodge and the surrounding Betasso Preserve.
Olson is well known among ultra-runners for winning big races – including a back-to-back win at the Western States 100 in 2012 and 2013. Now closer to 40 than 30, he is beginning a new chapter of his career – still racing but also focusing his time with his wife Krista to build community around running in their hometown of Boulder.
We’ll meditate with Tim and get to know some of his new Adidas running teammates – including track speedsters and fellow mountain runners like Gavin Coombs and Abbie Mitchell.
Following the run, we’ll sit down with Tim for an in-depth discussion about mindfulness and his personal journey from rock bottom to becoming a 2-timeWestern States 100 winner.
If you are in the Boulder area and this episode inspires you to want to get out on the trails… you are in luck!
Tim and his wife krista are hosting these monthly from the A-Lodge. Check the Infinite Trails Community Run Facebook page for the latest dates and details. NEXT RUN: Thursday, Nov. 8.
