Not the record run, but fun to watch. http://goldenincalescent.blogspot.com/ March 27, 2013 at 2:04 pm #667305 singlewhitecaveman 242 Posts Weird, just read that last night. In defense of us mortals, Killian is completely inhuman. When I get out in the mountains I also take no food or water, and trip lightly down the path, chasing butterflies and touching flowers with my fingertips. However, I’m also panting like a sick baby 2 miles in and begging strangers to put me out of my misery.

I have ran into him a couple of times in the mountains. Above all, he’s a mountain lover… the way he talks about his relationship with nature makes you want to leave everything behind and leave in the wilderness. check out his latest documentery A fine line, it has great footage! www.splitboardmag.com March 28, 2013 at 5:09 pm #667311 Jefe009 675 Posts @splitrippin wrote: You have to be inhuman to rock this steeeeez! 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 Dude I’m so bringing back the spandex onesie.
