#345 From the Top of the World to the Bottom of a Cliff and Back: Hillary Allen’s Incredible Story of Resilience

Sky runner and author Hillary Allen (Success Through Failure episode 345: From the Top of the World to the Bottom of a Cliff and Back: Hillary Allen’s Incredible Story of Resilience)World-class sky runner Hillary Allen fell off a cliff. Literally. But broken ribs, a fractured back, a ruptured ligament in her foot, and broken wrists didn’t stop her from rising back up after the horrific accident. Now that’s badass!

In 2017, world-class ultrarunner, Hillary Allen, was at the top of her sport and it felt like she was running on top of the world as she competed in Norway’s Tromsø Skyrace. She was nearly halfway through the 50k race when she fell 150 feet off an exposed ridge.

In her book, “Out and Back: A Runner’s Story of Survival and Recovery Against All Odds,” Hillary recounts the dramatic story of her accident and rescue, and her fight to return to the life she loves.

With vulnerability that reveals remarkable strength and introspection that yields wisdom, Allen shares in this episode of the Success Through Failure podcast the story of her recovery— both physically and mentally— the hard-earned knowledge that the path forward is not always linear, that healing takes time, and that the process of rediscovery is ongoing as she learns what it takes to survive and thrive. Don’t miss her story. Tune in now.
