A Meditation on Challenge With Trail Runner Abby Hall

Abby Hall looks back on a career filled with purpose, struggle, triumph, trail dust, and pain.

What’s more revealing — how you place in a race or how you handle the hardships along the way? That’s the question Flagstaff, Arizona-based trail runner Abby Hall asks herself in this short inspirational video from adidas Terrex.

The film features introspective narration from Hall intercut with footage from days on the trail. There’s professionally shot footage, yes. But the best moments come from the raw mid-race recordings made by Hall herself.

It’s a pretty uplifting way to start your week, and the best part is you don’t have to be a trail runner to enjoy it. Give it a watch.
