Whether perched on a portaledge, cooking in camp or stretching the limits of the daylight hours, bright, reliable lighting is an essential tool for any mountain adventurer. Defy the dark with @blackdiamond's headlamp collection.
I'm turning 29 this month. I love getting older. With each passing year, I feel more and more comfortable in my own skin. It took me a long time, lots of missteps, and many failures to get to a place where I finally love and accept myself. There will always be obstacles to overcome in life, but loving and believing in yourself regardless of what life throws your way, gives you the ultimate advantage to conquer any challenge. It is not easy, especially as a woman to love yourself. Our society conditions us to always question and doubt ourselves, think we are not good enough, smart enough, capable enough, etc. You must have faith in yourself and believe that you are amazing. Be kind to yourself. Treat yourself as you would a best friend. Cultivate a postive mindset and belief that you can be anything you want to be, and work hard for your goals. I have some big dreams and goals that scare the shit out of me. I know the path will be tough. But now more than ever, I feel hopeful about the future, excited and ready to push myself, and confident that if I stay patient, persistent and positive I will reach my destination. It's a wonderful feeling. #loveyourself#keepgoing#sweatyselfie#unfilteredlife
Today was amazing! I set a new PR for the 10k at a time of 46:25. (7:29 pace) I placed 6th overall female and 2nd in my age group. I'm just on cloud nine right now. What started as a chilly morning turned into a perfect, sun-kissed day. This was a challenging course with many twists and turns, and omg the hills! So many hills! But I loved every second of it. Proud to have accomplished the goal I set out to achieve today. Best of all, I got to share this beautiful day with my family. #todaywasablessing
Finally on spring break! Got home from taking a physiology exam tonight and felt super motivated to get some speed work done on the treadmill. Usually all I want after a test is a giant glass of wine or an ice cold beer! But I'm happy to have gotten these 400m repeats in instead. Hoping to get in plenty of family time and R&R (running and relaxation 😉) over the next several days.. #stayfocused#dontwishforit#workforit
3 miles that's wassup! Took a longer than intended break after my last race bc #lifehappens ... I decided to switch things up and try Insanity the other day and IT KICKED MY BUTT. Has anyone ever tried it?! I thought I was in pretty good shape, and I could barely walk up the stairs after the fit test. 😧 I was sore for days! Happy to be back on that #runninggrind#illsticktorunning#sundaynightsweatsession#runnergirl
