MOST RECENT

I love weekends full of adventure though I love laid back weekends too. (Yes, biking ten or whatever miles is considered laid back to me.) This weekend was a rest and relaxation kind of weekend. I had the chance to sleep in, take it slow, enjoy every sip of my tea, snuggle with our little family, and just be. I truly needed that extra sleep and relaxation time. It was absolutely wonderful!🚴🏻‍♀️💕☀️ #bike #biking #roadbike #bicycle #roadbicycle #cycling #enduranceathlete #girlsonbikes #putfunbetweenyourlegs #jamis #mainebiking #getoutside #nature #ridelikeagirl #redefinefeminine #girlswhoridebikes #lifebehindbars #crosstraining #rideyourbike #ridemore #cycling_queens #women_on_bikes #cyclelikeagirl #adventure #explore #wander

Headed out for a “long” run. My first double digit run in awhile. Last year at this point was doing back to back 20 milers- this year not so much- oh well. Last year training seemed like a part time job- which was great, but had to take off for a lot of 1/2 days and then be pretty tired for the rest of the day. This summer has been filled with rest and shorter adventures. One is not better than than the other- I am not a better mom or wife this summer over last summer, nor am I less of an athlete this summer- just grateful to have balance and support of my family- either way☺️

On the last day of the trip the mommas of family town took a run- just us. All the dads stayed packed up the gear and hung with the kids- it was nice😊 -

On a scale from 1 to 100, how fun do you think it is to head into the mountains to spend the weekend with 16 outdoor industry badasses? (Hint: 💯)
Just as our CEO @yogurecki wrapped up Outdoor Retailer in Denver, she headed to Telluride to be a part of @project16x, a outdoor experience designed to build new friendships, spark powerful conversations, and create collaboration.

We love watching connections happen outdoors. For @desertsirena and @llcooljennings, Instagram chats turned into hikes and floats and new friendships, and Waterhole Wednesday was born! These women are passionate about sharing inspiring outdoor adventures. Check out @trailsinspire and @nativesoutdoors for more of their work, and tell us your favorite places to float.

I only took one photo on the Beckey-Chouinard. I had spent the whole day being so focused, in the moment and overwhelmed by our tiny position on such a spectacular hunk of rock. When I looked up from the last belay and saw @lizzyvanpatten seemingly floating nearly 2,000 ft off the ground, silhouetted against the smokey haze, I had to capture it. This photo so perfectly captures the essence of our time in the vertical world. Just woman and stone in a delicate dance.

Sometimes I feel like I'm such a weirdo. I get stares already at the times when I'm in a wheelchair but on top of that I might get some extra stares because of my bodyhair. Mostly I haven't noticed anyone really staring at my legs or armpits. It's more just my insecurity that makes me think and feel that way. When I'm in a good (and safe) company or when I'm deeply focusing on something I forget it all and don't mind.
.
Have to admit though that every now and then I secretly admire those smooth legs among other women. Occasionally I still find hairless legs "more beautiful" or "more feminine". But I also realize it's due to the way I've learnt to feel about bodyhair. It's the way media presents women. It's the way beauty industry wants us to feel so that they can offer a "solution" to our "problem" and make money. Make money from our insecurities 💸
.
I'm still on my way learning to accept my body as it is. With bodyhair, belly rolls and all those "flaws". But I've learnt so much already. Baby steps 👣
.
And just a little reminder here in the end: if you critizise X in women but not in men, then you don't have a problem with X - you have a problem with women.

Back from Bethel and one of the wettest 💦 trips I have ever been on. 175-miles of wind, rain, (a wee bit of sun), hiking, packrafting, and some of the BEST fly fishing ever. SO. MUCH. FUN. We’re enjoying drying ourselves out in Anchorage, and eating & drinking our way around town! 😋

Also - I think that previous post must have stalled on uploading. We were back from McCarthy two weeks ago! -

After years of working in adventure sports, Jen Gurecki (@yogurecki) realized that outdoor gear created with women as the end user simply didn’t exist--despite women making up over 44% of the snowsports market.
So, she helped found @CoalitionSnow in 2014. Skis and snowboards made by women, for women. We”re pretty inspired and hope you are too!!!! @yogurecki More in @huckmagazine.

The past few days comprised the longest “solo” trip I’ve taken since meeting Jordan in South America... pretty fitting for it to come now, nearly four years later, as I prepare to do the greatest “solo” feat I’ve yet to attempt next weekend. .
**solo stays in quotes because 1. on all my solo trips I meet the wonderful people in and out of the day; 2. me running 100 miles will be a team effort, even though my legs and my mind will be the ones going from start to finish. .
