“Indulgence: 1000 Miles Under the Colorado Sky”

Below is a preview for the film  Indulgence: 1000 Miles Under the Colorado Sky featuring ultramarathon runner Anton Krupicka in a  running film inspired by mountain ski and bike films.

For those of you who do not know who he is, in 2006, Anton (Tony) Krupicka  won at the Leadville 100 miler and Leadville, Estes Park, and American Discovery Trail Marathons. In 2007 he won the Rocky Raccoon 100 miler, Collegiate Peaks 50 miler, and Leadville 100 miler.

This film looks at Tony as he trains in the mountains of Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and California during the summer of 2007. It reveals his approach to life and running and his pursuit of a primitive minimalist ideal which is so uncommon in modern society.

So why do we run ultramarathons?   If you must ask, then we cannot explain.

But Tony's explanation in this video applies to many of us, elite and "back of the packer" alike.
