This little guy and his friends saved me from the Yukon wilderness. Thanks to @georgeburghall for capturing the moment I said thanks! #testedtough #directorsoftoughness

I've got a crazy month ahead of me... While everyone is starting up with school, I'll be in the Amazon filming a subject that is highly controversial in the western world we live in. Having a little going away party tomorrow if anyone's interested in joining; I'll be leaving this coming Sunday. Check out the link in my bio to watch a little video application for mine and @hunterjnelson entry for the #directorsoftoughness

I wonder what @columbia1938 has in store for 2017 then...? All I know is that it's going to hurt! #directorsoftoughness #testedtough #gopro

"Right when exhaustion was starting to take its toll we rounded the corner on one of the long desert roads and the reddest rocks we’d seen yet. We had reached the aptly named Valley of Fire." - @faithevebee, Director of Toughness.

Having fun with the Polaroid camera while working the #directorsoftoughness event over at the Columbia Sportswear store. Aweyaaaa. 🍂📹🌲 #selfie #polaroid

Spent some time in the Hoh rainforest in the Olympic peninsula. I feel at home on the woods. I learned a new trick with my camera as well. #tinyhomeadventure is now in #Yosemite for the next few weeks. Service is limited I'll be off the grid for a bit. #directorsoftoughness @travelingtylergen @rossignol @nectar @maverik_inc @coastportland

it's been a year of yes.
a year of unknowing.
a year of wonder and awe.
we traveled to the Kamchatka Peninsula for an incredible couple of weeks, a two part journey. i saw my first active volcano up close and personal, felt the most foreign I've ever felt, and balanced the joy of having a fox walk right up to my foot with the strange feeling of not knowing quite how to respond when people either stared slack-jawed at me or asked to take pictures because they'd never seen anyone that looked like me. this year I've grown a lot, thought a lot about what it means for me to be in the incredible places I've been able to visit. sometimes living so much in my head was tiring and stressful. i couldn't overthink it, i just had to keep moving, keep smiling, embrace the learning, embrace the me that I was meeting on the road.

✔️ Friendly professional guides
✔️ Vintage Glacier Sunglasses
✔️ Crampons to stay up on the ice
✔️ And of course Columbia Omni-Heat Down jackets to keep you toasty 💪!
And now, where will they head to? Stay tuned!

talking to a beloved friend recently, i remembered something i used to tell myself all the time. black and white is not grey. it began for me as an actual truth, the color of my skin is not grey, but that fact became a possibility. if black and white is not grey, but instead a shimmering brown, an exception to the rules, what else lives in this nuanced space? what else can be created, exist, or talked about here, with me, in the margins, in this unknown unthought of place that i get to occupy, in the in between? to me this place is magical, it invites you to set down preconceived notions about what it means to look a certain way, talk a certain way. here in the shimmer you get to listen, choose, own, be exactly the person you want and need to be regardless of what anyone else is telling you, regardless of labels and looks and belongings. here we get to explore words and phrases, come closer to shared definitions, understand how someone else's context forces a different interpretation, as @therealrauly said, here we get to honor each other's truths. it wasn't always easy to occupy this space, but now i can see how glorious it is and i'm determined to use its power for good.

The question is not "how many miles are yet to come", but rather "to what degree are we pushing ourselves to our limits along the way"!

i went from my longest race ever of a half marathon in October to a move across the country, a new job, intermittent training and in December... bam! the news: surprise! 5 weeks notice for a 3 day 100k race in February. i freaked, flew home for advice, overtrained, injured my knees. i ran it anyway. day one was rough, i hobbled, i winced, i cried out, i cursed the trail. a man came by encouraging me "buen ritmo." as i finished day one my knee buckled when i tried to cross a river. i looked at my stats that night and felt so upset inside, a woman at the scoreboard recognized me as the one who had been limping on the course, she acted it out since I didn't know the word limp in Spanish.
#
looking back, i realize i didn't share that much publicly about the race. i guess i was kind of sad and embarrassed, though even then I realized that even finishing was a huge accomplishment for me, it didn't seem like enough.
#
now we are back at it. eight days until a 55k with nearly 12000ft vert. i've been asked my projected time, honestly, i'm not even thinking about it. i'm overjoyed to be running healthy again.

monday feels.
overnight flights with no sleep feels.
just slept in this gravel parking lot feels.
you get the idea.
#
but...shout outs to coffee and a few quick days in Paris. 🇫🇷 i'll take tired if I get to travel!
📸vibes @_cammcleod_

it's our favorite time.
adventure time!
see you in two weeks USA!
#
hey my beloved country,
let's make a deal.
i'll go run an ultra and we all work on learning how to talk about the fact that our country exists in a historically racist context that we need to acknowledge, learn to recognize , deconstruct and dismantle so we can grow as a nation. when i come back we'll have made a great leap forward.
deal?! deal!

i think we can, yes we can.

as much fun as we had on Mt. Shasta (irony evident when you watch the latest episode which starts with me in tears - link in bio 😜). i'm but pretty pumped to be soaking up the blazing hot sun and brooklyn's finest humidity for a couple days instead!! 📸 @_cammcleod_

“There were so many things to think about and every single thing is essential. In mountaineering, what I’ve learned is that you can’t afford a misstep.” - Faith Briggs, Director of Toughness.
Our Directors of Toughness attempt to summit Mt. Shasta 🏔️ Will they overcome the physical and emotional challenges of mountaineering? 💪

now up on @columbia1938 (link in bio) our Mt. Shasta episode.
this one was the hardest tests for me yet
i struggled with not being in control, with facing fears, with altitude and mental blocks. the mountain showed itself in its full glory. but i tried, and i came out renewed and full of gratitude and awe.
hope you can check it out.

Best piece of advice for someone who’s going to paddle across the Klamath River: “Forget everything you know about self-preservation and just go for it”! Faith, Mark... we feel you 😂 💪
