Trail Mix Volume XII

Anton Krupicka. Ultra-Runner, two time winner of the Leadville 100, fellow CU graduate and keeper of all things Riding The Wind. There’s a whole laundry list of other accomplishments, but for now, he can add another feather to that cap by joining the wonderful folks who have contributed to the Cold Splinters Trail Mix series. Small feather.

So yes, this week’s music comes from Mr. Krupicka out in Colorado, home to Mt. Elbert, whose summit view is featured in the image above. Download the mix and then watch this short video of Anton made by New Balance. Tracklist is after the jump.

    I think of Anton as an amazing alpinist as much as a runner. If you look at his blog he does alpine routes (class 3 – moderate snow) as runs with just shoes and tent pegs(!!!) that I would be happy to accomplish with big boots, an ice axe and crampons. He is truly amazing and a personal hero. Oh, and he knows how to pick the jams to!

    Just back from a few weeks in CO and one of the high points was meeting Anton twice – at the Grays trailhead and the next day coming of of Elbert (coming off fast!). To meet one of your hero’s in this way, to shake his hand- very powerful and what a gift.
