Yessss, I love this. It’s what it’s all about during summer. The pace doesn’t matter, it’s getting to access and explore places like this that makes it all worth it. Why train? So you have the confidence to explore places like this within the confines of your busy life and schedule. But, better yet...Why run at all if it’s not to access places like this? #liveforthemoment . @backcountry #findyourbackcountry . #trailrunning #summer #explore #run #runner #humanpowered #adventure #mountains #swapteam #microcosmcoaching #mountainrunning #mountainlife #lakes #mountainlakes #wildflowers #ultrarunning #mountainrunning #thebest #fun

Easing back into the training routine again after an awesome weekend racing the Power of Four 50k here in @aspensnowmass. . The race wasn’t quite what I was hoping for. In all honestly it didn’t yield the result I believed myself capable of after a great training block. But, that’s ok. Results aren’t everything. In fact, they aren’t much really. Just a singular point of temporary, shallow fulfillment. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t want to win, or do my best. . I’m still trying to figure out what was missing for me out there and how I can access that inner fire that usually shows up on race day and allows me to truly go to the well and back during these big efforts. To really destroy myself, physically, and push through the lows with mental toughness and resilience you really need a specific mindset and mentality I just didn’t have. This race was a great step in the right direction though, and I’m excited to take new learning on to upcoming events. Let’s go! #liveforthemoment . @dynafit #dynafitrunning @backcountry #findyourbackcountry @aspensnowmass #aspensnowmass @julboeyewearna #julboreactiv @lebent_ #lebent @swordperformance #drinksword . #trailrunning #swapteam #audipoweroffour #poweroffour50k #poweroffour #ultrarunning #running #ultrarunner #skyrunning #skyrunningusa #mountainrunning #uphillathlete #mountainathlete #plantbased #humanpowered #adventure #pushyourboundaries #microcosmcoaching #fun

It’s officially mountain running season and I’m excited. Four races in the next five weeks and tons of time exploring in places like this in between. We’ll see if all the aerobic base building has been worth it soon! #liveforthemoment . @dynafit #dynafitrunning @backcountry #findyourbackcountry @julboeyewearna #julboreactiv @swordperformance #drinksword @lebent_ #lebent @independencerunandhike . #mountainrunning #microcosmcoaching #trailrunning #trailrunner #timetotrain #ultrarunning #skyrunning #skyrunningusa #run #mountains #mountainlife #fun

There’s something magical about these trails that always bring the best out of those running on them. Perhaps that’s why they are part of the ultra-classic Leadville 100 course. . I’m looking forward to supporting friends @lstephenson806 and @bryan_kerl on their 100-mile journeys this year. Let’s go guys! . #liveforthemoment . @backcountry #findyourbackcountry . #ultrarunning #trailrunning #humanpowered #leadville #colorado #leadville100training #leadville100 #leadvillecolorado #leadville100run #trailrunner #mountains #mountainrunning #ultrarunner #pushyourboundaries #fun

There is nothing more fulfilling than playing a small role in helping another reach their big picture goal. No race of my own, no summit or amazing experience can take the place of being present for the highs and lows of the journey to that proverbial, or physical finish line. The courage, the commitment, discipline and learning that takes place for all involved over many weeks, months and years is remarkable. . What a BREAKTHROUGH and inspiring weekend for @carrot_flowers_z at the Silver Rush 50. And, HUGE congratulations to Microcosm Coaching athletes @seth_howland_207 and @_mquintana for completing their first ever 50 mile races. You guys are amazing and continue to inspire me at all levels. #liveforthemoment .

@lstephenson806 getting 100-mile fit this weekend on the Power or Four (3 and 4) course here in @aspensnowmass. There are few places as perfect for training for the demands of a big mountain race as Aspen. Oh, and I’m looking forward to seeing Luke crush at the Leadville 100 in six short weeks. Dude is strong! #liveforthemoment . #timetotrain #trailrunning #microcosmcoaching #aspen #colorado #findyourbackcountry #skyrunningusa #pushyourboundaries #mountainsports #mountainrunning #skyrunning #leadville100 #fun

Do you aspire to greater health and well-being? To actively pursuing and participating in the activities that most deeply resonate with who you are? . What’s stopping you from fully embodying this vision you have for yourself? Fear? Anxiety? Societal pressures? . Remember, the path to achieving your goals, your value and success are not defined by perfection. Your best will change from day-to-day. The path only depends on progress. Daily actions, no matter how small, add up over time. They are significant. Their accumulation and the experiences garnered throughout your journey always culminate in deep levels of fulfillment and joy for the betterment of your well-being. #liveforthemoment . @backcountry #findyourbackcountry . #sponsored #microcosmcoaching #nolimits #pushyourboundaries #pursueyourpassion #timetotrain #trailrunning #run #running #zionnationalpark #trailrunner #skyrunning #adventure #passion #fun

Great weekend running with an incredible group of athletes and friends at @brokenarrowskyrace. Although I wasn’t quite feeling that inner fire and competitiveness, I was stoked to be back out in the mountains, moving through the terrain quickly and pain free. I’m excited to be feeling fit again, and slowly regaining confidence in my body’s ability to go the distance. Lot’s of fun ahead! #liveforthemoment . @dynafit #speedup @julboeyewearna #julboreactiv @swordperformance #pushyourboundaries @backcountry #findyourbackcountry @lebent_ #lebent @independencerunandhike . #mountainsports #mountains #swapteam #skyrunningusa #mountainlife #microcosmcoaching #ultrarunning #skyrunning #runsky #mountainrunning #running #run #trailrunning #plantbased #humanpowered #fun

In a world where everyone seems to be looking for the latest hack, shortcut, tip or trick to get the edge, let it be known, there are none. There are zero substitutes for hard, consistent, and passionate work. It’s high time we all wrap our heads around this fact. #liveforthemoment . @backcountry #findyourbackcountry #sponsored . #microcosmcoaching #timetotrain #trainsmart #trailrunning #uphillathlete #swapteam #skyrunning #ultrarunning #running #run #mountainrunning #liveforthemoment #dynafitrunning #pushyourboundaries #mountainlife #plantbased #fun

There isn’t much point in training if you don’t use it. West Rim, Zion National Park. Twenty of the most inspiring miles I’ve run this training block. Looking forward to coming back one day and running the entire traverse. #liveforthemoment . @backcountry #findyourbackcountry . #sponsored #microcosmcoaching #mountainsports #pushyourboundaries #skyrunningusa #mountainrunning #trailrunning #running #adventure #mountains #skyrunning #travel #mountainlife #fun #zionnationpark

WHY DO I COACH? . Not long ago I could barely run 3 miles. This sometimes seems crazy to recount, since I’ve been a competitive athlete my entire life. But, like most people, my life hasn’t exactly been linear, smooth or effortless. I’ve experienced incredible lows both physically and mentally, especially in the recent past. At times I let my health and well-being suffer because of my ungrounded need for instant gratification and distraction from being deeply unsatisfied with working environments I diametrically and deeply opposed, relationships that didn’t serve me and frustration in the lack of milestones and support manifesting in my desired career. . Making changes in my own life and shifting my priorities and perspectives gradually over long periods of time have helped to ground me and bring balance to my life. But, beyond all else, a new understanding of what wealth, health and fulfillment really mean have helped shape my perspectives and who I am today. . Transformative work and the small action steps taken everyday over time are the sole responsibility of the individual and the individual alone to enact. But, I couldn’t have reached the place I’m at today without the help and inspiration of coaches, guides and mentors. . Support, encouragement, and accountability are fundamental aspects to making healthy and nourishing mind/body changes that last. These changes ultimately transform who you are at the deepest levels. . It is my belief in the importance these individuals play in my life, and the space for exploration and development they provided me, that I feel the deep responsibility to provide the same space to help others. . For those who need encouragement, guidance, subtle reminders to stay on track, and strategies for reaching your desired health and athletic goals, I WILL PROVIDE SPACE for YOU. . I recognize the importance my coaches, guides and mentors have played in my continual development, and THIS IS WHY I COACH. . #liveforthemoment . #microcosmcoaching . . . . . . #training #trailrunning #accountability #live #plantbased #expressions #pushyourboundaries #run #running #ultrarunning #skyrunning #mountainlife #explore #swapteam #coaching

Just getting back to home base after eight incredible days on the road and seven amazing trail runs along the way. A few of these runs will remain some of my favorites of all time. . Although we (@carrot_flowers_z) didn’t up the ante too much this week, and respected our training schedules, we clocked nearly 90 miles on the trails with over 16,000ft of elevation gain. Respectable to say the least, but more then doable when staying mindful of taking rest days and making sure easy efforts are truly easy. This is without a doubt the key to any athletes success. . After some tough months dealing with a nagging foot injury, I’m stoked to be putting in the time and effort to create a strong aerobic base for future races and mountain goals. Next stop @brokenarrowskyrace and if everything stays healthy @skyrunnerusa. . More to come from this chapter. . #liveforthemoment . @backcountry #findyourbackcountry @dynafit #dynafitrunning . #adventure #roadtrip #trailrunning #running #swapteam #microcosmcoaching #plantbasedathlete #plantbased #ultrarunning #mountainrunning #training #skyrunningusa #skyrunning #skyrunningworldseries #fun #pushyourboundaries
