Fall Seven Times, Stand Up Eight | Vicki Romanin
Jan 05, 2021 Episode 16
Carolyn Coffin and Kim Senechal

Vicki Romanin is a firecracker of a lady runner from Whistler, BC.  In her words, she is a grateful, silvering, 60 year old mom/wife/retiree with a growing passion for mountains who is showing no signs of slowing down.  Although she has a lifetime of running experience, over the last decade Vicki has tackled some increasingly difficult and impressive races including the Boston Marathon, Cascade Crest 100 miler, Fat Dog 120, and Tor des Geants.  Even COVID didn’t slow her down this year as she decided to do her own Whistler Alpine Meadows run this summer “just for fun.”  No marked course, no official aid stations, just her and a few pacers. 

In this episode we talk about passion and planning, overcoming adversity and stress fracture, the value of good coaching, and the secrets to longevity in running. As you listen to Vicki talk, you can hear the intensity and passion in her voice as she speaks about the mountains, the trails, and her intense gratitude for her continued ability to experience it all in such an intimate way.  We hope you are inspired by Vicki’s energy as much as we were.
