Athlete On Fire

Nolan's 14 is a run over the 14 summits over 14,000 ft. in Colorado's Sawatch Range, from Mt. Massive to Mt. Shavano in either direction. You can choose your own route between summits, but the most practical routes have been estimated to be 88 to 106 miles with 44,000 ft. of climb. Cutoff is 60 hours to the last summit. I

This is not a race.


Nolan's has been around since the early 90's but has gained popularity with the growth of ultrarunning.


Eric completed Nolans ins 2012 in 57:27:14 after scouting the course since 2003. This year Eric attempted the FKT on the 14ers but was thwarted by bad weather.

On this episode,  Anthony Trucks. His clients refer to him as “Truckstop”. It was a nickname he earned while playing college and NFL football because he attacked people and hit them so hard they were stopped in their tracks…but he just kept moving. The name stuck because that’s now the way he attacks life. He attacks head on and just won’t stop. It’s ironic because he spent the first 14 years of his life being told he was worthless and would never amount to anything while experiencing hell in foster care.

Anthony was the first and only one in his family to earn a college degree. He married his high school sweetheart, played in the NFL, built and run his own successful business, and has trained thousands of people ranging from professional athletes to stay at home moms to get healthy and strong. He’s now an author, a consultant for billion dollar a year companies, father of 3, and he speaks across the globe to help people change their lives.
