"Take A Bet On Yourself!"

6 years ago, I decided to do something outside of my comfort zone, took some chances, and hoped for the best.

There were nerves of how things would be received, anxiety over not doing enough, and the constant fear of failure…not only for me personally, but for the purpose and mission I hoped would reshape the current state of the trail running and hiking communities.

Through this experience my mantra became “take a bet on yourself.” I realized that if I didn’t believe in myself and abilities, how could I ever create change or inspire others to believe in their capabilities to make change. 

I hope TS community members will embrace the mantra of “take a bet on yourself,” as it’s the most powerful belief one can have in her pursuit of life.

Injuries on the Trail

Running down the mountain my mind replayed points from my Wilderness First Aid class in my head. Within a few minutes we reached the other runners. I slowly approached, taking in the scene…

Mental Preparation for Long-Distance Backpacking

It’s commonly estimated that 75 to 85 percent of aspiring thru-hikers on the Triple Crown trails quit before reaching their goal. That’s a staggering number. So, what’s the difference between those who get to the opposite terminus and those who don’t?

Is Recovery Missing From Your Training?

For longevity in sport and to prevent burnout all around, recovery is just as important, if not more so, for finding ways to keep going. I use body self-awareness to key into what my body and my health need in terms of rest, movement-based recovery, and mental space.

Stepping Towards Your Vanlife Adventure as a Woman

Let’s be completely honest, starting vanlife as a solo woman is not easy. People are going to ask questions and say things that will induce fear and make you question whether you want to venture on this path at all.

The Best Laid Schemes of Trail Runners Often Go Awry

“It’s to the right, I think” I said to the runner in the white windbreaker in front of me, who had hesitated at the trail junction. “Go ahead, you seem to know where you’re going” she said. I was about two miles into the Big Bear Squatch North Half Marathon and so far, succeeding in two of my race goals: staying on course and starting slow.

Reunited with Chili Shorts

Coming around a bend, there in front of me was a man wearing chili shorts! Could it be him? The shorts were the same, but instead of a white tank top he was wearing a long white sleeve shirt. How many chili shorts wearing trail runners could there be in the Westchester/New York City area?
