Justin Wendling

What trail running means to Justin
Trail running allows me to enjoy my favorite things all at the same time among friends: Running, Exploring, Adventures, Sunrises, Sunsets, Mountains, Rivers, Nature Panoramas, and planning it all in spreadsheets.

Justin’s favorite training quote
Attack Each Day With Enthusiasm Unknown To Mankind - Jim Harbaugh

Justin’s advice for new trail runners
Come for the camaraderie, stay for the beer.

Justin’s most memorable/proud run/race
I have two:
1) Softrock 100: planning, organizing, and running 100 miles in the San Juan Mountains, my favorite place, with Dawn, my best friend.
2) Javelina Jundred: first 100 mile race, winning 1st Team with Dawn and enjoying the race with friends Jason, Mallory, and Stella. Fun fact I don't like: Avocado, Coconut, Pineapple, Chocolate.

Justin’s running/racing bucket list
Glacier National Park
Hardrock 100
UTMB & Tor des Géants courses (à la Softrock)
Western States 100, I guess.

Keep up with Justin Wendling!
