In this edition of the Train Well Race Well podcast I sit down with Justin Ricks of Colorado Springs, Colorado.  Justin has run 2:22 for a road marathon but his main focus has been in the trail running scene.  A few of the things we touch on include…

  • His beginnings as a runner and the influence of his family
  • His dramatic weight loss
  • His interest in getting back into Ultras
  • His traveling adventures with his wife & kids
Justin is sponsored by La Sportiva as a member of their Mountain Running team.  He’s also a member of Team Colorado, arguably the strongest group of mountain/trail runners in the country.  Besides being a competitive runner, Justin also works with GrassRoots Events where he helps direct several races and offers his coaching services.
