Monday Morning Motivation: Summits of My Life by Kilian Jornet

Filed in Movies and Videos by . Most recently updated on

Kilian Jornet is easily amongst the best endurance athletes in the world. He is a prolific ultra-runner and mountaineer who has set speed records on numerous peaks, including Kilimanjaro and Mt. Olympus, and has even won the Western States 100. All of that was just a tune-up for his next project however as he has now charted a four-year plan to take on some of the most iconic peaks on the planet.

According to Kilian’s website, over the next few years he will be attempt to climb Mont Blanc (several times!), Elbrus, the Matterhorn, Aconcagua, Denali and Everest. He’ll bring his own unique style to those climbs (read: light and fast) but he insists this isn’t about setting records or going fast, but more about delivering a message of values and simplicity.

The journey will be a very personal one and intends to share it through video as well. The trailer for the project can be found below and it looks amazing.
