Accomplished American ultra runner and Pearl Izumi athlete Scott Jaime traveled to South Africa to embark on a trail running adventure through the heart of the iconic Swartberg Mountains, and surrounding Karoo region in the Western Cape, all the while discovering some inner truths about why he runs, and what can be done to simplify his own state of being.
“Often times we are insulated with a society that provides everything needed to survive. Running in the mountains of Colorado has provided me an outlet to experience life with a sense of freedom and isolation while stripping away the material things provided in my life. The opportunity to experience a new country and culture, in which modes of transportation is often by foot to provide necessities simply for living, was an eye-opening experience for me and one that has left me asking many more questions about how to lead a more simple life.” ~ Scott Jaime
