"You know what seems exciting? Trying something totally different!" 

-Kara Goucher on transitions

On Saturday, June 15th, Kara will embark upon her very first competitive trail race at the Leadville Marathon. Kevin got a chance to pick Kara's brain before her big race and dig into some of the big questions around transitioning from road to trail running. 

"It's been terrifying. But It's really reconnected me with all the things I first fell in love with, in running. I would never have done this 5 months ago.. It's been really hard. But really rewarding. It's made me a better athlete, in the long run."
