Bryon Powell of iRunFar catches up with Helen Cospolich before the 2010 Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc. Helen lives in Breckenridge, Colorado, a perfect mountain training for UTMB. She won the relatively flat Leadville 100 in 2008, but is even better on big climbs as her course record at the Collegiate Peaks 50 Mile would suggest. Here’s the interview.
