Becoming a Better Version of Self – Our Chat with David Infante


“Everything shook. The whole world shook.”

David Infante’s first run out his door in New Mexico wasn’t pretty.

Do you remember your first run or your first anything where you hadn’t developed many (or any) of the skills for the activity?

It can be awkward, uncomfortable, and even painful. Yet, sometimes there is something inside that says keep going, keep doing it anyways, there is something here for you.

David kept running. The world began to shake less. Running would become a sacred home to reflect and process life.

In 2012 after a weekend at the Team RWB Trail Running Camp, David brought home a new found appreciation for nature, for trails, for the real connection through shared experience, and the positive spirit of this running community.

“I found my place, where I need to be.”
