EP 492 Allow Your Happiness to Run Wild: Zoë Rom

Scott & Don

Zoë Rom had a great birthday this year. She woke up and set out to run the 17-mile, 5400′ ascent to Capitol Peak. Capitol Peak is one of the infamous “14ers” (peaks in Colorado over 14,000′ elevation). It is a class 4 climb that is rated “high” in exposure, rockfall potential, and Route-finding. It is also know for the “knife edge” near the top. She had a good day and ended up setting the supported FKT in 5 hours 37 minutes.

Zoë is also the assistant editor at Trail Runner Magazine, runner, climber, coach and host of the new Trail Runner Magazine in-house podcast called DNF.

We talk to Zoë about her FKT and about how DNFs are successes that propel us to become better.
