As an athlete, filmmaker, and a race director, Sherpa John Lacroix is a seminal figure in the modern version of the sport of ultrarunning—and one who’s not afraid to ruffle a few feathers either. We caught up with Sherpa John for a fun conversation about his roots in hiking and backpacking (1:30), how he cut his teeth in race directing and may have semi-accidentally started the OCR craze (7:05), his current race series (29:00), ultrarunning as therapy (31:45), commercialization in the sport, his favorite races, and more.

One thing I love about trail running, and especially ultrarunning, is the chance to talk in depth about a variety of topics for hours on the trail. On any given day these might include parenting issues, the next race on the calendar, training pitfalls, injury prevention, and female body systems.

A couple weeks ago I ran the McDonald Forest 50k for my 6th time.  I hadn't run the race since 2015, so I was excited to get back out there and see how fast I could go.  My training this spring was decent, but I did very few fast efforts or long runs because of a lingering shin injury.  Regardless, I still had high hopes for race day.

As I’m writing this, it’s a beautiful sunny day where I am sitting in Boulder, Colorado. It’s 76 degrees and runners are passing by on the trails out the front door. I hear birds chirping the same thing over and over, which I think roughly translates to: “Hey, you coward. Go outside. And do something. Epic.”

Like last month, I’m equal parts disappointed and relieved.  On one hand, I wanted to get on with it.  On the other, I’m excited to crack a beer and plot tomorrow’s adventure.  I’m not pregnant yet.  Darn, and also phew.
