Becoming the All-Terrain Human

Kilian Jornet Burgada is the most dominating endurance athlete of his generation. In just eight years, Jornet has won more than 80 races, claimed some 16 titles and set at least a dozen speed records, many of them in distances that would require the rest of us to purchase an airplane ticket. He has run across entire landmasses­ (Corsica) and mountain ranges (the Pyrenees), nearly without pause. He regularly runs all day eating only wild berries and drinking only from streams. On summer mornings he will set off from his apartment door at the foot of Mont Blanc and run nearly two and a half vertical miles up to Europe’s roof — over cracked glaciers, past Gore-Tex’d climbers, into the thin air at 15,781 feet — and back home again in less than seven hours, a trip that mountaineers can spend days to complete.

“If you run, you are a runner. It doesn’t matter how fast or how far. It doesn’t matter if today is your first day or if you’ve been running for 20 years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.” – John Bingham

Getting “Clarity” on Movement

Reflect for a moment on the importance of your body; how it feels and moves.  While we can all have a rich life mentally and spiritually, we still translate our lives into reality through the vehicle of our bodies.  As a result, one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves is a strong, healthy, lean, coordinated and pain-free structure.

Many people set out to give themselves this gift each New Year.  But I'm sure you're aware of the many statistics that follow:

Due to the popularity of the recent movie “The Way,” more Americans have become aware of the Camino de Santiago, the 500-mile trek through northern Spain.  What many Californians don’t realize, however, is that we have a Camino of our own right here in the Golden State.
