"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.

Hiking Goals: Where to Start?

What I’ve come to love about the hiking lists and goals is that you can go at your own pace — or the pace your current life allows. You can spend a few months checking off summits or spread it out over decades.

Like most runners, I looked for foot-focused solutions when my feet hurt. I became obsessed with finding the answer to that question, and what I found out surprised me. It also completely changed my running and has helped me stay injury-free for many years.

It Was Only the Beginning

In order for you to understand the importance of this trip for me, I must give you some background information of my desperate need for it. This grant provided by Trail Sisters and The North Face came as a sweet blessing, precisely at the right time. I now have come to realize that the biggest problem I’ve had for many years, is that of balance.
