September Recap and October Goals

We also enjoyed every second of nice weather and mostly coped with the hotter spells… Here’s the rest of last month’s recap and a look at this month’s goals. Continue reading

Verso L’alto: Switchbacks and Spirituality

Something I love about my word of the year, Verso L’alto, is that it means upwards, and upwards is a direction but not a specific route. This is something I’ve been meditating on a lot the first part of this year, especially when I get some alone time on the trail. Continue reading
