He makes me coffee even when we're in the wilderness πŸ€—

Give me some sunshine & some trail and I'll feel at home!

The Lost Coast Trail has long stretches of beach with beautiful coves, but hiking through sand is much harder than it looks! We wore gaiters around our shoes to keep all the pebbles out.

Well, we did it! We backpacked The Lost Coast - an adventure I've been dreaming of for a long time. This trek is challenging in many ways, from hiking through sand & bowling ball size rocks to calculating hiking windows based on low tide. Tackling each challenge as a team with @chrisriekert is what made this adventure so memorable. Trading moments of strength, pacing each other, and always stifling exhaustion with encouragement - these are the ways that great adventure partners help you perform at your best and have more fun along the way. #GetGoing #TomTomTogether @tomtomsportsnam

Just two days until this team is off to backpack the Lost Coast! I'm so excited!!!

On Saturday I checked one huge thing off my bucket list: I completed my first century ride!!! 107 miles of rolling hills on my road bike. It was absolutely a struggle at times but I got through it with my friend @jbernbau and of course @chrisriekert rode with me the whole time to keep my spirits high. I'm so happy I challenged myself and got it done! πŸ™ŒπŸ’ͺ🀘#marincentury

Morning runs are basically just my own personal dance party πŸ™ŒπŸ’ƒ @hellobragi

I'm making finals preparations to backpack the Lost Coast with @chrisriekert next week. Any recommendations or tips from those who have done it?!
