About Anton Krupicka:
I was born on August 2nd, 1983 in Nebraska.
I’m most widely-known as a mountain runner, but I also spend a lot of time climbing, biking, and skiing. Most generally, I am interested in human-powered mountain adventures.
I’ve been running for 20 years (since 1995), climbing for 14 years, and biking and skiing seriously for only the past year.
I got into (BIKING, RUNNING, CLIMBING, SKIING, ETC) because (REASON).
I got into running, biking, climbing, and skiing for the same reason: moving through the mountains under my own power is my most reliable source of contentment.
What I enjoy most about my sport is pre-coffees, post-beers. Which is just another way of saying that getting out in the woods everyday and using your body just makes everything in life better. Seriously.
Favorite place to:
Run – Grand Canyon and/or Grand Teton
Ride – Limited experience, but I really dig the Switzerland Trail on my REEB Cycles Sam’s Pants.
Climb – Rocky Mt National Park or Wind River Range, Wyoming
Ski – My experience is limited to only the Front Range, but hey, I just like being able to pursue all these activities from within a mere 30-45min drive of Boulder.
My biggest accomplishment to date is getting to do this stuff full-time. I’m so grateful for that.
My special talent is spelling? Maybe?
My favorite music is TV On The Radio and The Walkmen will probably always top the list for me. Lately, I’ve been listening to a lot of The Kills, Glass Animals, and Wolf Parade.
No favorite movie, but a couple highlights from the past few years have included Birdman, Whiplash, and The Place Beyond The Pines.
The biggest Inspiration to me is anyone who’s approaching life with creativity and originality.
My philosophy of life is ever-evolving. Stay curious.
My favorite Hotbox Roasters Coffee is Kenya Dig It, and the way I like to brew it is in a Bialetti!
