Do you ever get the random urge to skip? Like full on, kid style, giddy as shit skipping! Random bursts of skipping is kind of my thing, it makes me so happy and feel so full of life. Today, for no reason at all, I simply feel like skipping everywhere I go, screw this adult walking business. Warning: please ignore the adult woman skipping around Safeway today (or join me!). Either way, I hope you have something that instantly takes you back to the carefree days of childhood, what is it?!
@sync_performance ambassador @maxrhulen’s take on the Dump Truck Duffels. • “I have been using my @sync_performance Dump Truck Duffel bags for traveling over the past year. Anything from camping to international travel these bags have handled it like a champ. Between the 90 and 120 liter bags you can fit anything you might possibly need.”
I am a huge advocate of surrounding yourself with kickass people. Friends and strangers both. People who feed you comfort food then shove you out of your comfort zone (@heidikumm). People who have never met you before but are willing to drive you for hours, telling stories and rocking out to good tunes (@ilenebloom). Friends of friends who take time off work just to stay awake all night to care for your smelly, whining body (@stevesmith9553). Fab Five best friends who put aside their own running goals to help you achieve yours and feed you snacks and sing you songs and take photos while you puke (@alpacabdirte). Internet strangers-turned-friends who cook you fancy pasta and give you delicious beer and let you sleep on their floor (@mikeoffthemap). Friends who stay glued to their phones watching your crazy antics. Best friends who crew and cheer and love from afar.
Without friends like these, I wouldn't be where I am today. I love them all. Thank you for your support during #runrabbitrun100 !
This Delicate Life 🍂
wraps up it's shocking display
of light and heat,
and begins to fold the earth
into a crisp repose
scented with an exquisite
this season of loss,
I behold the brashness and
the love, the loss and the longing, the urgency of becoming,
and the delicacy of pure being.

My relationship with knitting started about a year ago, when my then-roommate Brooke showed me how to knit a scarf. My hands fumbled with the needles and my first creation had huge holes and lumps in it, but I was instantly hooked.
Fast forward to when Brooke invited me to join her Etsy shop @knittingcircleco as a creator. I learned so much about knitting and running a business, and was able to enjoy the process by working with friends.
I’m excited to share that I’m branching out and starting my own knitting company: @westwardandwoven 🏜. It’s bittersweet leaving KCC behind, but I can’t wait to pursue my own company and turn my hobby into something more 💛
My Etsy shop is still in the works, but stay in the loop by following @westwardandwoven on instagram ✨
I don't do the whole relaxing bathtub thing. It's not that I can't sit still, I just can't ever get comfy in there and rather than the desired effect of relaxing, I get a little grossed out 😅. It's not my thing and that's ok. I listen to @marieforleo 's podcast and she recently had a great episode on "shifting out of work mode" and reconnecting with your ♀︎♂︎energy. 🛀🏽
There really is nothing like a good saltwater soak to silence whatever is ailing you, but my "bathtub" may look a little different; there are no candles, I'm definitely not naked 😆, the water is not warm, in fact, it is quite cold, haha! I guess we all have our ways to reconnect with ourselves, and water (in our case, any body of water out in the Wild) is undeniably a great conduit for these two tomboys 🐺💁🏻♀️
What about you? What's your ideal saltwater soak? 💦

Crouched alone on the tower I watched my friends on the pitch behind me disappear, engulfed by the falling snow. The sounds of absolute silence fills my heart with a panicked roar. .
New blog post on me, @jennlynns, @airelanda, @cglilly, @gabematson, and sam's adventure on Temple Crag this past spring. Link in my bio!
