Ep. 42 The Reality of Running. With Milo Zanecchia

The trails are always home

“They’re all the small moments that I realized that I trail ran for. Those small moments, not necessarily for running itself.”

Milo Zanecchia wanted to capture all the moments on a run when we aren’t running. We all know how distracted we can get on runs, for all kinds of reasons, but did you ever really think about how it all adds up? Milo’s film “The Reality of Running” features these moments in a beautiful way. It’s brilliant to watch, made me laugh out loud, and conveys all the feels of a full day on the trail, in a tight 3-minute package. I love it and it was clear from chatting with Milo he knew what he wanted to accomplish with the film. He loves the outdoors and the opportunity to showcase them, and certainly advises anyone chasing their dreams to do so with gusto.

“Make time for the projects you really believe in. It’s easy to get distracted by the money and the paycheque, and those are really important because they help you buy the gear and the equipment and everything that is necessary for these passion projects. Ultimately, the passion projects are the ones that open up doors to clients that you want to work with.”

Milo has some other ideas for future films and is thrilled to be included in the Trail Running Film Festival in the meantime. He was a lot of fun to chat with and I’m excited to follow him along as he seems like an easy person to cheer for. Come on out on Tuesday, April 18 at the Rio Theatre and see his film “The Reality of Running”.
