Sunday afternoon, the views were great. The run was hard. My mental game was just not into it from the start. My quads were tight. I felt so insecure on my legs. 2 miles in I seriously contemplated going back (but the Playboy was behind me 😉). I walked more than I ran and was truly happy when done with it. Tomorrow, I’ll be back out there. Hopefully, I’ll have another story to tell!
tonight, I watched a female i love conquer the shit out of her fear... hands trembling, heart blasting out of her chest and I’ve never been more proud. for her, my mama. for all women in my life & all the women who inspire me — “may we know them, may we be them, may we raise them”
🤘That good feeling vibe🤘
First training ride after last Sundays Marathon... oh god!! My legs werent ready for those 42kms of mountain running (if you can call it running)🤦♀️😂
But, its time to get back on the bike and man it felt good !! Slow... but awesome. Totally chilled out long XC ride, no pads, no full face and no stacks... yieeewww! .
Hope you are all having an epic Friday... if you're stuck at work, it might make you feel better that I'll be at work tomorrow 🚒😊
Not gonna lie, I love this earth a lot. I’m a fan of discussing solutions rather than problems, even though the solutions are few and the problems are many.
I couldn’t think of an elegant or poetic way to say this, but climate change is a massive problem that is affecting the world of a global scale. And in the spirit of solutions, trees have the ability to sequester this carbon (take it out of the atmosphere). The @treesforthefuture initiative in Africa works with local farmers to create forest gardens that turn barren, infertile soil of subSaharan Africa into a lush and nutritious space to grown all types of food barring and beneficial plants. With deforestation and unsustainably farming being other huge problems, the @treesforthefuture initiative is a solution that hits three birds with one stone
Not a recent photo, or a photo of me climbing... it is however an accurate depiction of how my heart feels after climbing for the first time in two weeks 😄🙌🏻💗 thanks for the climb love and wisdom @susygstar
Testing out those stubby little single-track legs. With patient ride company from @mollysharpharrison @tglazemarlow and @scullbinderranch Thanks for the 9-million breaks friends! #outdoorwomen#livelifeoffleash
It’s abnormal for me to have bouldering projects. If you know me, you know I tend to avoid bouldering at all cost but there’s something really magical about Moe’s Valley and the psyche is high to go back! 📷 @thatclimbingpanda

Africa is mystic; it is wild; it is a photographer's paradise; an escapist's Utopia. It is what you will, and it withstands all interpretations. To a lot of people, as to myself, it is just 'home'. It is all these things but one thing - it is never dull.
Big 💙 to all who made Kenya home these last 3 years.
It’s been my FAVOURITE adventure. 🚀
If you see a plastic bag floating around, what do you do? Do your part this #earthday (4/22) - Pick up 10 pieces of trash, carpool, recycle, just do better & be aware. It starts with the little things. Let’s pave the way for green with @lyft by rounding up to donate (OPT IN now- Link in bio) @world_wildlife #giftfromlyft 🌏💙 (📸 @kaszphotocreative )
Photo from the Sterling Pass Trail hike yesterday! 5 miles in and out on a well maintained trail. It is rated difficult and will definitely give you some cardio because the first mile you already ascend 1000+ ft. Then you lose 700ft altitude before hitting a brass trail sign letting you know the direction of Vultee’s Arch. As you follow that sign, you see the arch from a distance and walk by a commemorative plaque remembering a couple that died in a plane crash about a mile from the trail in 1938. Past this plaque, you have a final, more unkempt part of the hike up to the arch if you choose. This part is super steep and it’s a crumbly trail- but so worth it! Because if it’s difficulty and the trailhead is hard to find, it’s less popular, so we had the whole arch to ourselves to relax and enjoy watching hawks hunting in the air in front of us. Plus we only saw three people the entire time- quite a rarity in Sedona! We head back the way we came and finished the hike in about for hours including plenty of stops to enjoy the scenery and time on the arch. If you are an experienced hiker or hike regularly and want a moderate workout with a scenic view and no tourists- this is for you!
all eyes on rio tonight, a beautiful city despite its many problems. I will never forget my experience there a few years ago. yay for my coworkers who have once again pulled off some amazing work celebrating the athletes and their moms this games! #pgemp#rio#olympics
