Day 6 of thanking my hiking pals.
While @nic4367 is my newest hiking pal I have to say that we have captured some amazing memories so far. We explored caves for hours and come out to fresh snow that captured both of our minds. We have trekked along a flooded river and had to problem solve where we think the trail could have gone. Shoot! We've gone in search of wildflowers and found a natural site that I had yet to experience before. No matter where we have gone there is always laughs and deep conversations. Through these outdoor excursions you have transformed from just a coworker to a legitimate friend. Thank you for all the honest chats and good vibes.
When I was a kid my dad would always say, “We’re lucky we live somewhere this beautiful.” He’d say it while we were hiking along a river or driving windy roads to a remote camping spot. Back then I just figured that’s the type of corny thing dads say. These days, I’m finding myself saying it to my kids. We’re lucky, that’s for sure. #northwestisbest#protectourplanet
#NatureAsanas ~ Tomorrow is our final day and yogis choice. I can't wait to see what you come up with! I had a blast sharing some of my favorite places with you. Our gallery is simply amazing. Thank you all for participating!!! Hosted by:
I'm going to go down in history as the genius who thought to bring a spray bottle on our 85 degree long run. We were spritzing it while yelling "Woooo! Girls gone wild!" 😂 Thanks for always having a blast with me out on the trails Kat! Now go and crush this taper week before D30!! 📷: @trail_kat
SO THIS IS 30. I honesty never thought I’d be skiing through the night across a glacier littered with crevasses with freezing wind plastering my own snot to my face. That’s how you feel truly alive. The Alaskan sky never fully goes to sleep this time of year, and I was about to turn in around 9 o’clock when the team decided to move out. I literally had just tucked myself into my -30 degree bag with my precious last Snickers in one hand. We skied for miles until almost 4 am, as the sky turned from white to grey to pink and eventually a weird hazy blue. It was cold. It was invigorating. It was adventure to the brim. The only sounds I could hear were the clicking of my bindings, song-like jingle of hardware on my harness and my skins sliding over ice. Accompanied by some fairly uneven breathing into my face mask, we pressed on to the compression zone where we’d make our final camp before the bush plane came to get us. I fell asleep smiling.
Introducing team CrossFit Ammo: Charles LaRue, Mark Cole, and (not pictured) Santee Hathaway.
This will be our First Expedition race together and as a Team. What probably makes us most unique is we are two blue collar guys that enjoy lifting weights and signed up for a 200 mile endurance race.
Since signing up for the race, they adopted Santee as their third teammate. We’ll be curious to see if she’s got as much spunk as these two guys. We’re guessing so if she signed up to race with them alone in the wilderness for 3.5 days.
No place in New Zealand feels as wintry as Mt Cook. Below freezing temps and stunningly jagged peaks. This weekend I got an entirely new perspective of the Tasman Lake and Glacier. 😍 thanks for the ride @mtcookskiplanesandhelis
What’s kickin Rome?! We out here! Learning lots of histories, drinking all the wines, eating all the pastas, eating all the gelatos, speaking all the Italian cuss words. Today I walked 10,638 steps, and learned that 400,000 people died as gladiators... which is really fucked up. It’s 2am here so, I’m donzo. ✌🏻🇮🇹 P.C. @haley.sawtelle

Posted this car last year as the creek was the dry. This year water surges through the creek again and has pushed the car about 10 meters from where it was last year! #forceofnature#okanagan#watercycle#oldcar

Who sees the raptor being weird?!
Escaped to Ouray this weekend for some beautiful miles after a stressful week. I was supposed to meet up with Mountain Film friends, but they’ve been (understandably!) busy so I’ve been relaxing mostly solo. It’s been exactly what I needed for an attitude adjustment 😊
The energy of an expo is one of my faves! Especially one like this, where runners from all over come to chase that elusive BQ! Best of luck to everyone running M2B tomorrow. Come say hi and get good vibes at the @malibumarathon booth!
