Monday Morning Motivation: Rhythm

We may call Joe Grant a “runner guy,” but honestly, those words fail to give a true notion of what he actually does. Joe Grant heads into the mountains for a lot more than running. What he finds out there, high among the craggy peaks, is what he likes to call rhythm.

Joe’s adventures take him around the globe. He’s been on canyon running trips in Mexico as well as finishing all of Colorado’s 14ers in a month. He’s also finished on the podium at iconic ultras such as the Hardrock 100.

In this film, Black Diamond captured Joe in his element, doing his thing and searching for that rhythm, deep in the heart of the Alps.


It’s kind of the things that you in silence, in quiet, without anybody looking. The external validation is complete abstraction. You do not care. You start with the clitter. Everything’s buzzing and there’s so much going on. The world’s just like a crazy tumultuous place. Your mind just, sort of, starts to let go of things gradually. That attentiveness is not forced. That’s where you tap into that ultimate feeling of freedom.

I'd love to hear your thoughts...
