If you didn’t know any better, you might think Fernanda Maciel is some type of extra-terrestrial runner. This Brazilian master—based in Chamonix, France—runs through the mountains with so much skill, strategy, and strength, it’s hard to believe she’s one of us. In reality, Maciel is such a celebrated trail runner thanks to her hard work. She’s spent every waking second possible understanding and executing her trail running dreams. That includes female world records running up and down Mt. Kilimanjaro (highest peak in Africa) and Mt. Aconcagua (highest peak in the Americas). All these peaks and miles later, she’s finally taking a break to share her knowledge with you.
