Trail des Fantômes has been on my running to-do list since the day I ran my first trail. Sometimes I was out of shape. More often there were calendar conflicts. But this year it suddenly became a certitude.
It’s Monday and I just woke up at over 1900m of altitude on the floor…
Anton Krupicka is without a doubt one of my favourite ultra runners out there. I’ve been following his blog and short videos for a while now, so I just had to see “in the high country”. and well, i wasn’t disappointed.
The Western States 100 is one of those legendary races. Probably the most legendary one on North-american territories. Take that as a starting point, add a battle between 4 of the greatest trail runners at the time during the 2010 edition of the race, and you’re in for 2 hours of breath-taking cinema
Truth is: this one, I haven’t read. And there’s a good reason for that. The book I’m talking about is “Córrer o morir” by Kilian Jornet and it’s available on Amazon FR here but, as you might have guessed by the title, it’s in Spanish (or Catalan I suppose to be precise). But if anyone is in for a challenge, feel free to translate it so I can read it! If you’re wondering why i’d want this book so much, see below!
Also, if anyone has other running-related reading advise, please share!
Any other books on running you can recommend? comment away!
