Hike number three of my @52hikechallenge was a short one but hiking in the winter weather is proving to be great conditioning. I used to only hike a couple of times in the winter but now that I am challenging myself to hike at least once a week, despite the weather, I can feel my body becoming more resilient when dealing with various weather conditions. 🙌🏻
Where did you get your sense of adventure from? And who are your adventure buddies? Here's the story of our friend Sarah (@skandog), who went on an epic Southwest roadtrip with two of her best friends ⬇:
"I've been hiking, camping, and fishing ever since I can remember. My father is a driving force in my love for hiking. He was always so enthusiastic about it, so that enthusiasm naturally was transferred to me! Hiking is my stress relief. It's what keeps me sane after working multiple 12 hour shifts in the hospital. If I didn't have hiking I'd probably go a little bonkers. Not to mention the amazing sights I get to see. I wouldn't trade those moments for anything!" - via @skandog // #PeopleWhoHike
Sitting at the edge of my comfort zone. ☡
I have a fear of heights, or more like a fear of falling. I know, I know I've been in multiple pictures standing, sitting, and even jumping over the edge. This is a NEW fear. In the past I didn't hesitate to Cliff jump, hang upside down on zip lines, or repell down waterfalls & I did it all without fear (lol I just realize how much I trusted my life to a cable or a rope 🤔) Point is Fear will either PUNK you or PUSH YOU, and I've never been a punk!! I refuse to surrender & let this NEW fear of mine trick me into living a boring life. I will continue to challenge myself, climb mountains, stand close to the edge & feel those butterflies in my gut because It makes me feel alive. And because .. I LOVE it more than I fear it!

“Don't let the expectations and opinions of other people affect your decisions. It's your life, not theirs. Do what matters most to you; do what makes you feel alive and happy. Don't let the expectations and ideas of others limit who you are. If you let others tell you who you are, you are living their reality — not yours. There is more to life than pleasing people. There is much more to life than following others' prescribed path. There is so much more to life than what you experience right now. You need to decide who you are for yourself. Become a whole being. Adventure.” -Roy T. Bennett
