Hoping I haven't missed all the fall colors when I arrive this weekend in Colorado!
All my friends in Colorado are getting snow and I wish I was too! I'll definitely be packing my @tubbssnowshoes for my trek west next week. #tbt to sheep adventures with @laurakottlowski @thunderandrainco earlier this year.
I get to go "home" to Colorado this week for a biz trip. I can't wait to write a gigantic blog post about how hard this past year has been for me. It's going to be a gritty one. I realized today that I've almost completely lost myself and not in the happy-wandering kind of way. Knowing that I'll be moving back to the mountains has already begun to light up the path back to myself. I don't care what anyone says: where you live and what/who you surround yourself with DOES matter.
Travel isnt always pretty. It isnt always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts it even breaks your heart. But thats okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory on your consciousness on your heart and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully you leave something good behind. >> In about 36 hours Ill be driving away from Colorado for a few months - all in the name of travel. Im feeling a lot of sadness excitement and pain right now. My heart is…
I feel like I am where I am because part of me believed in myself enough to give myself a chance to succeed OR fail. I hope whatever it is that you dream of doing - you at least give yourself the chance to take the plunge. #Europiphany
I turn 30 this month so to celebrate Im planning on returning to the first mountain I climbed: Guadalupe Peak. I remember climbing that mountain in non-mountain gear wearing trail shoes instead of hiking boots nearly running out of water and not realizing how incredibly hard a moderate trail with 3000 ft of gain truly is. What doesnt matter is that I am going to climb a mountain for my birthday. The length of the trail and elevation gain are silly numbers to keep track of. Theres no need…
It would be easy to chose to be miserable in Texas after living in beautiful Colorado for two years. I miss it everyday and am excited to return. However I don't chose to be miserable. That is a waste of energy and I need all the energy I can get. Instead I find hidden and secluded gems in the city to trail run -- like this spot today.
