Choose Mountains  We all have a story. We're a community of outdoor enthusiasts who choose to make the mountains a part of that story Curated by: @tiarevincent

🔸”The mountains have been a place for me to test my physical and mental boundaries. The endorphin rush you feel standing on-top a big summit is so accomplishing and rewarding but makes you feel so small all at the same time. They are a place to disconnect and allow me to tap into my sub conscious thoughts. Here I can deal with those deep thoughts that may not surface with the busyness of everyday life. I am happier, more patient and can be better to others because I prioritize the time for myself, that’s why I #choosemountains.”

🔸”I #choosemountains because they reflect the truth of who I am and encourage me to accept myself where I am, not where I think I ‘should’ be. My relationship with them brings out the qualities that I want to grow. They offer perspective and illuminate the truth about things in life that masquerade as important but actually distract from what really is important - truth, compassion, acceptance, honesty and appreciation for this one and only guaranteed moment.”

🔸”I #choosemountains because mountains create scenes that draw you away from reality and make life feel surreal. Give me snowcapped peaks instead of skyscrapers, give me the sound of glaciers cracking instead of the sound of traffic... mountains make life feel the way it should: simple.”

🔸”I #choosemountains because they prove me wrong every single time. They destroy self-doubt and show me strength I didn’t think I had. They heal brokenness, teach lessons and show you just how much ground you can cover while you transform along the way. I choose mountains because it’s a chance to share my journey, spread kindness and help others conquer life’s most challenging summits.”

🔸”It took me 175 days to walk from the border of Mexico in the US all the way to the Canadian border on the Pacific Crest Trail. I #choosemountains to find myself creatively, spiritually and emotionally. I choose mountains to learn more about myself and others from around the world. I choose mountains to discover a new meaning of home. In the end, however, I realized that I didn’t choose the mountains, they chose me.”

“The first time I hiked up to the lake pictured below, I looked up in awe at the huge massif above me. After taking 4-5 hours just to get to the lake and being exhausted (while dreading the hike back down), the thought of climbing it never even entered my mind as a possibility. If you would’ve told me that I could not only climb it, but I could run up to the lake, climb the mountain, and run back down in only 6 hours... there was just no way. But this past weekend, that’s exactly what we did, and I’m so thankful I can continue to surprise myself and have friends to push me to constantly move faster and do better.”

Today our @choosemountains Meetup was in Colorado to Hope Pass! Lead by #choosemountains ambassador: (@missshellshock)

What an amazing, strong crew today with perfect weather!
Where should we have our next meetup!?

Last week’s #choosemountains Meetup to Mount Ellinor was the most rainy day we had in between all the sunshine. It was like walking in a shower. It’s a good thing we all had a blast and smiles and laughter all around!
Tomorrow @missshellshock and @tiarevincent are leading a Meetup in Colorado to Hope Pass! See our IG STORY for details!

🔸 “Gretchen Walla (@gretchen_walla ) is one of my very best friends and always will be. She is truly the most selfless person I know and inspires me every day to be a better human. She is the reason I am a part of the trail running community and have made so many great friends. I mean all of this genuinely, I’m not just saying nice things for the heck of it, I seriously mean it
.

Without getting super longwinded, I just want the instagram world to know how great she is and how badass she is. I had the honor of running the last 10 hours of her (@teanawaycountry100) with her and I am changed for the better because of it. If you haven’t ever paced your best friend from midnight to 10am after skipping a few nights of sleep, are you even really friends?
.
Thank you to @briantmorrison for creating this beast of a race. You need to sign up to race, pace, or at least volunteer next year. Counting down the days already. Seriously, you need to be a part of this next year, people
