Ultra-runner Anton Krupicka has captured the attention of many thanks to his blistering times and dashing image. But this star of distance running chooses to run through the mountains for the same reasons familiar to throngs of “average” trail runners.

“Not until we are lost do we begin to find ourselves and realize where we are and the infinite extent of our potential.” Just one of many great quotes in this seven minute film.

“We can never have enough of nature,” the film quotes Henry David Thoreau. “The Ingenuous Choice” Outdoor Live features mountain runner Anton Krupicka exploring the wilderness of the mountains, racing 100 miles and reflecting on what makes mountain running essential to him.
