Many distance runners understand the indescribable feelings of pushing our minds and bodies beyond preconceived limits. Navajo Nation cattle rancher and ultrarunner Eli Neztsosie from Tonalea, Arizona understands endurance and discipline. He was raised with no electricity or running water, and taught to use his legs and feet to get where he wants to go. These skills are utilized in his passion for trail and ultrarunning. Every day, he strives to be better and stronger. Watch Patagonia’s film on Neztsosie and the Navajo Nation.

Evening run with my two most loyal companions that stick by me at home no matter how big the challenge is, Tractor and Berry. It takes a lot of mental and physical commitment to run a marathon yet alone an ultra marathon across deserts but it teaches u a whole lot more. Huge thanks to my friend Ace for the awesome shots #altrarunning #altrashoes #nathansports #marathontraining #ultramarathoner #bordercollie #blueheeler #nativeamerican #waterislife #navajo
