On | Mountain Hut Episode 5 | feat. Germain Gragier & Chris Thompson


I started trail running because I like
to spend times in the mountains. It’s good to practice technical running. It’s like a lifestyle and a way
to enjoy the surroundings. This is out of my comfort zone,
so this was something that I was excited to get to try
with such an experienced athlete. The Alps are really technical compared
to other trails over the world. If you are a trail runner from the Alps,
you are really versatile. It takes a heck of a lot more
concentration running on the trails. I’m used to just running as fast as I can. I’m not worrying about where my feet land. So it was quite an interesting experience. It was a lot more technical
and a lot more complex. The most important thing is the grip. If you have grip, you are confident. And if you are confident, you can
go up fast, and go down fast. It helps with the enjoyment factor,
and it helps you improve very quickly. You need the right equipment
for the right job. I became very tense being
in another environment, and he was able to be so
at ease with his surroundings. He really impressed me, the way
he could just navigate his way around. It’s a very unique experience, and
I feel very lucky to have got to do it.
