173. Hillary Allen, Professional Skyrunner, On Ultra Adventure’s, Dangerous Terrain, and Injury Recovery
Hillary Allen is a Professional Ultra Skyrunner, The North Face athlete, and author of Out and Back: A Runner’s Story of Survival and Recovery Against All Odds. On this episode of Marni on the Move, Hillary and I chat about how she discovered ultra and sky running, and what routes and races motivate her to train for one of the most intense endurance sports in the world. She talks to me about her passion for science, and how that love translates into her running career. Hillary—whose nickname is “Hillygoat” for her mountaineering prowess—fell off a steep rocky ridge. She fell 150 feet, bouncing off the mountain on the way to what she believed was her death. Hillary talks about the mental and physical tools she utilized to power her through recovery. She sheds light on what inspired her to tackle the trails again after such a traumatizing experience. We also sync up about the process of writing her book and the launch of her new podcast, The TrainRight Podcast
