Scott is also an environmental economist and co race director of the Åre Extreme Challenge.
"Several years ago I met my girlfriend, also an endurance athlete, and she showed me her Vivo shoes. I remember saying: ‘Cool that you can train in those, but can you really race in them?’. Guided by curiosity, I started my quest to better appreciate (and strengthen!) my feet.
As a coach, teacher, and speaker I rely on nature and an understanding of the human body to motivate my students to natural, sustainable and healthy movement. I’ve never met a trail, a mountain, or a river that fails to inspire an appreciation of the body’s unique endurance potential.
I also work as an environmental economist. Individuals (and society) make better decisions when they see how our well-being is connected to nature’s ability to provide fuel, food, fresh water, biodiversity, habitat, and not least, the recreational opportunities upon which my sport (and our health) depends.
