I get daily emails from Google calendar with my schedule for the day. My favorite emails are the ones with "you have no events scheduled for today." I will not be getting an email like that this week 😩 My calendar is forcing me to be productive.

"Exercise is a celebration of what your body can do." This is what I keep trying to explain to my (confused but supportive) husband about my love of hiking. I woke up early this morning to hike 9.5 miles before breakfast just because I could. An outdoor celebration of the months of early mornings at the gym and healthy eating that have enabled me to do things (for fun!) that used to sound like torture. Getting stronger rocks 💪🏼

The back says "for all the refugee mamas who just want to keep their babies safe." That little Syrian boy on the beach will haunt me for the rest of my life. As a mommy, I cannot be silent. #resist #refugeeswelcome

Rainy winters have their upsides 💚

Yesterday I hiked. Today I march.

It seemed like a good day to get outside and away from the Internet.

Shark cloud! 🦈

I've heard the view from Flatiron described as "epic" but it all pretty much looked like this today. One of these days I'll get up there when it's clear, but I sure don't hate hiking in a cloud ☁️

We hike a LOT this time of year. On the blog today I listed five of our fav AZ hikes. There's something for every fitness level! Find the post at

Getting up before 6am on a Saturday always feels like a bad idea until I'm sitting somewhere like this when the sun comes up ❤ Sleep is overrated anyway.

This hike had its share of misadventures (see my previous post) but it was one of the best I've ever been on. My traitor phone dying on me was the worst- I missed so many good pictures! This was the last I got before it decided 43% battery was just too low and gave up the ghost. #igsouthwest

Yesterday I tackled a hike I've been wanting to do for ages. 15 minutes from the top I lost the trail, the weather closed in so I could barely see 10 feet in front of me and my phone died. It felt like a 6 o'clock news story waiting to happen so I turned around and made it home riiight before my husband called the park service to ask if they could go find me.
