Who is @NotAfraid2Fail? Get to know Jason Suarez – One of the dopest running photographers
6 days ago
You've probably seen his handle somewhere in your Instagram feed if you follow enough professional runners but who is @NotAfraid2Fail? Meet Jason Suarez. He's one of the co-founders of CITIUS MAG and he takes some of the best photos in the sport. He's also quite the character.
Jason and I first met at the 2013 U.S.A. Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Des Moines, Iowa. My high school track coach shot me a text to get to know him and I learned a little bit about his goals and aspirations as a photographer. I was 19 at the time also had my sights set on covering the sport closely and we shared that in common. What I didn't realize at the time was that Jason was working super hard to just get the opportunity. On this show, he shares a quick story about flirting his way to a discount on a hotel room, sleeping in his mother's car and finding his way into the sport.
Jason discusses some of the influential people that he's met along the way to now shooting for some major brands and collaborating with companies and athletes on projects.
As much as I rib on Jason from time-to-time (and he'll give me crap too – just check out his Twitter feed), he's very genuine and quite the grinder. I'll stop saying nice things about him now. Listen to the episode now.
This episode was brought to you by Maurten. Fuel properly for long distance races! we recommend Maurten. It’s the world’s most carbohydrate-rich sports drink and it’s being used by the top marathoners in the world. Eliud Kipchoge used it during the Breaking2 attempt and the Berlin Marathon. Kenenisa Bekele has been using it since winning the 2016 Berlin Marathon. Mo Farah even used it prior to his gold medal runs at the world championships. It worked for me at the Berlin Marathon and it could work for you. They have two drinks with 40 or 80 grams of carbohydrates and they’re now available in the U.S. Check them out today at Maurten.com
