PURE HEAVEN - Trail Running In Southern Utah Video

I've been keeping a little project under wraps but now I can let you in on one of the coolest things I've been involved with lately.

A month or so ago I got an email from a professor at BYU named Chris Cutri. He is working on a film about ultra endurance sports and asked about coming down to southern Utah to shoot some footage with me and a few friends.

He asked for some trail suggestions so the first spot we hit up was Gooseberry Mesa. I showed up to meet the crew and was AMAZED at the incredible equipment they had. Chris was joined by stunning photographer Ty Arnold (check out his website HERE), one of Chris' students (sorry, I forgot his name), and incredible drone photographer Dane Christensen (his website is HERE).

I casually asked how much money in camera equipment was sitting in that van. Their estimate was nearly as much as the cost of my house! Their equipment made me drool.

It was fun to run with my friend and fellow southern Utah runner Emily Baehr.

I also met John Brown from northern Utah for the first time. Lots of fun and lots of laughs were had.

The whole project isn't complete yet, but Dane but together a video of his drone footage that is seriously awesome. I had so much fun showing these guys around the trails in my backyard. This video is proof that southern Utah is PURE HEAVEN for trail runners.
