In an age where obesity is the #1 killer in America, FINDING TRACTION presents the inspirational story of endurance specialist Nikki Kimball's quest to become the fastest person in history to run Vermont's 273 mile Long Trail.
This project grew out of idea Rick Smith had a for a human endurance film that I just couldn't let go. Luckily, Jaime Jacobsen (and Danny Schmidt, and many others) had the energy, care and time to make this project the fine film it is today. I'm very honored to be this film's co-producer/director.
