For Kyle Richardson, running isn’t just great exercise. It’s about being present in the moment, having respect for the mountains and trails, and connecting with mind and soul. In episode two of the Peaks Project from Black Diamond, Richardson runs and climbs up the Crestone Needle, a 14,203-foot summit in the Sangre de Cristo mountains of Colorado.
