Last week, we had one of the most accomplished athletes of all time come to Western Colorado University in Gunnison, Colorado, for our Blister Speaker Series. But in addition to Courtney Dewaulter’s mind-blowing exploits and her legendary physical toughness on the trail, it is Courtney’s curiosity and enthusiasm that make her truly unique, and a joy to be around.

So it was quite an opportunity to get to get her thoughts on life and the limits we tend to place on ourselves; her approach to training and competition; how she goes about setting goals; and more.

Ultimately, while we’ve watched Courtney’s staggering achievements as she crosses finish line after finish line, setting new course records and accomplishing the seemingly impossible along the way, this conversation makes it clear that her achievements are very much mental victories, and there are takeaways in this conversation that each of us would do well to absorb and implement into our own lives.
