    Jeshurun Small | OCC Top-American

    Jeshurun Small | OCC Top-American

    Jeshurun Small is a pro trail runner for Adidas TERREX living in Boulder, CO. Jeshurun popped on my radar after his 2nd place finish at the Canyons 50k in April where he gave all-time great Hayden Hawks a run for his money at the North American UTMB Major for 50k. Then in August, Jeshurun had an even bigger breakthrough with a 5th place at OCC -- the UTMB World final of the 50k distance. Top-5 in the world and top-American at only 25 years old. 
     
    We talk all about Jeshurun‚Äôs background. We spend a bunch of time on the Mountain Sports Program at Western State University ‚Äď a support system that helped to nurture Jeshurun into the great athlete he is today, we talk about his training, his YouTube channel and being a creator in the sport. We talk about those Canyons and OCC performances, look ahead to future goals, and a lot more. Hope you enjoy the convo.¬†

MONT-BLANC and the UTMB

Excellent coverage, reporting, comments, etc….all week. And on You Tube as well.
As a French speaking fan of your show, I have to correct you (and most English speaking people). When saying MONT-BLANC, do not pronounce the C ! ! And by the way, same for Sauvignon Blanc, for people who are celebrating !!
Safe return home. ūüôā
