You may have already seen iRunFar’s interview with Anton Krupicka prior to the 2009 Leadville 100. That interviewed focused on Anton’s performance at the White River 50 and his thoughts about the 2009 Leadville 100. Well, we’d like to share another Anton interview we did at the same time, but never pointed out to iRunFar’s readers. This shorter second Competitor Running interview focuses on more basic points such as Anton’s training, his thoughts on injury prevention and running shoes, and the utility of consistent training.

We hope you enjoy both interviews with Tony.
