Mindful Running: How to Become Awake in the Wild | 6 p.m. February 25 | Presented by Charlotte Roennau
From running professionally for Denmark as one of the country’s top sprinters, to moving through the landscapes of the Roaring Fork Valley, Charlotte will share the story of how a high-performance athlete evolved into a mindful long-distance runner. Through personal experience, professional journeys, and her love for the outdoors, she will share ways to become more awake in running, nature, and life in general.
“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet” – Thich Nhat Hanh. Charlotte tries to live by Thich Nhat Hanh’s words as she leads Mindful Running Retreats in some of the planet’s most stunning locations. The start of Charlotte’s running began with a career rooted in trophy hunting, performance goals, and professional competitions on the Danish National Team. Now her running has evolved into a practice of mindful movement and joy found in nature. A native of Denmark, Charlotte, her husband, and 2 boys moved to Aspen in 2013. They left the flatlands of a European city and careers with 15 duffle bags because their hearts longed for mountains, adventure, and life outdoors.
