About the Author

Kilian Jornet is a world champion ultrarunner and ski mountaineer from Catalonia, Spain. Born in 1987, he was raised in the shadow of the Spanish Pyrenees. By age 5 he had completed the ascent of Aneto, the Pyrenees' highest peak. Among his many accomplishments in trail and ultra running, he is the four-time champion of Europe's Skyrunner World Series, three-time champion of the grueling Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc, and 2011 winner of the world's oldest 100-mile race, the Western States Endurance Run in California's Sierra Nevada. He has set speed records on mountains across the globe, including Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak. Jornet is currently at work on a long-term project combining ski alpinism and running, called Summits of My Life, which will include speed-record attempts on the world's greatest peaks, including Mount Aconcagua, Denali, and Mount Everest.
