The documentary film Finding Traction is a rare and revealing look at the life of extraordinary ultrarunner, Nikki Kimball, as she attempts a speed record on Vermont’s 273-mile Long Trail. Emmy-award winning filmmaker Jaime Jacobsen captures every step of 41-year-old Kimball’s journey, from her training runs along the rugged trails of the Rockies, not far from her Bozeman, Montana, home, to her courageous attempt at the record in the Green Mountains of Vermont, not far from where Kimball grew up. The film crew shadowed Nikki Kimball for four days and nights during the week of August 13, 2012, as she attempted to become the fastest person (male or female) to run the iconic trail.

I imagine some of the VFTT members know Nikki. Any stories you could share about her? I look forward to seeing the documentary.
