Over the weekend, my hiking buddy and I registered for the Phoenix Summit Challenge we’ve been training for! The Seven Summit Challenge sold out in half an hour this year, so I was pretty stoked that we got in. But then I got really nervous. Like, bubble guts and everything. We are actually IN this […]

I had such a great Sunday morning! I really hope you did too.  I spent the first part of my day hiking, laughing hysterically and witnessing a gorgeous sunrise with one of my best friends.  There are few things that get better than this.  Here are some photos from our latest training day hiking “Dixie […]
