Survival of the Fittest – Race Recap

Beautiful view at the top of the Gondola. Post-race hike. Racing mindset is something that I have been trying to work on recently. Just gathering information from awesome running friends I have met over the last few years, learning what they do and focusing on working on my mental strength. I have said in previous posts that I don’t race often and I signed up for this race last minute, 2 nights before race day actually. I had a few...

Tears on Mount Harvey

A few weeks ago we did a popular North Shore hike that we had previously done for the first time in 2011, Mount Harvey.

But it wasn’t just the fantastic scenery that had me reminiscing on this trip. This years summit...

Girls’ Night Out: Part 2

< Girls’ Night Out: Part 1 The words that follow are by Kelly Fowler: We made camp in an outcropping of two huge granite boulders sitting ninety degrees to each other, nudging the base of a pine tree. One boulder had a curious indent in its shadow, enough for three wanderers to sleep like sardines. Solid to our left and backs, the path ran from above, down to the right and onwards through the rocks and scrub. It felt safe to...

Girls’ Night Out: Part 1

Prologue: Recently, when we published our post “3 Types of Fun” we asked our readers to shoot us a message if they had any Type 3 fun stories they wanted to share. We heard from a few people, most who’d already posted their stories online, but we heard from one who had yet to tell the story of her adventure gone awry to the world. We enjoyed her story so much that we offered to post it as our first guest post on our...
