I’ll always remember this one girl in high school making a comment about running & how she would never be one because who wants ‘those big running legs?’ A lot of the girls around me agreed and I stayed quiet contemplating if I should still go for my daily runs because yes, did I really want ‘those’ legs?! If I could go back to that moment now my answer would go something like...
AB-SO-LOUTELY! YES! DONT EVEN!
Infact, I wouldn’t want anything less! They take me up mountains, they bring me back down. They allow me to run for miles and miles and they never give up (despite how much distance and elevation I put them through). They take me places so I can indulge in the worlds beauty. They allow me to move and that freedom is great. If I could trade them in for ‘perfect legs’ would I? Nope, because in my eyes my legs are 100% what I want and need. Is there even a question of ‘perfect?’ anymore - not in my eyes! 🙈 So if you’re young and reading this please don’t let anyone give you the idea that you shouldn’t do something because it’ll make you ‘this way or that way.’ Do what makes you happy & if your body changes because of that, embrace it 100%! #runfreegetdirty#skyrunner
an impression from our hike to the East Side of Runble.
From this perspective it looks much colder than it actually is 🙈😀 The snow is very dry and it's just a thin layer starting around 2200m.a.s.l. The weather was changeable and this resulted in these grey winter moments (or beautiful automn moments like in other pictures). We enjoy it here, it's a playground for outdoor activities 👍😎 #canmore#eastendofrundle#banff#banffnationalpark
The best mountain duo I know ❤️
Since coming home our new puppy Robson, who I’ve littered my insta story with recently has made the transition so much more bearable. Pretty amazing how much joy a little four legged creature can bring into your life, and this guy was no exception. I had the pleasure of venturing into the backcountry to Egypt Lake and Skoki with this pair, frolicking in wild flowers and bagging peaks. It was certainly two of my favourite adventures to date ( although this list is quite long 🙈), and I hope for more in the future when I return @brookewillson & @timber_tails ❤️ #eeor
By far the most challenging hike I’ve ever done, but also the most beautiful view!! We almost gave up on this hike a few times because of the thick clouds and unmarked trail, but we kept going and broke through the clouds and it was well worth it! Good reminder not to loose faith and keep working to get to the top of the mountain, whatever that mountain might be, never give up!
Reminiscing on the time when I was feeling really disconnected from myself, so I decided to summit Mount Rundle on my day off. I definitely left ‘enlightened’ to say the least, as I got caught up in a storm at the top and was nearly struck by lightening. Guess I got what I was looking for? #Travelalberta#eastendofrundle
East End of Rundle- Probably one of the more challenging hikes I've ever done, if not the toughest! 4 hours of steep cliffs that *might* have grizzlies wandering around. 🐻 Had the great company of @michael_pistono and our new friends @micahphoto_ & @liezl___ 💙
The hike started out cold and confusing. Even finding the trailhead took some time. Two other hikers were just as confused as us, as we followed the snow covered trail, not knowing if we were even on the right path. Once we found a couple trail markers and the trail became more noticeable the two continued on as we took a break. No views from the cold mist, it was like staring at a white backdrop, so peaceful and mind clearing. As we continued up the mountain the weather got better. When we broke the tree line, the sky cleared, even had a moment of sunlight. It warmed up and we watched the foggy mist roll like waves. We made it to the grassy flat part just below the summit, then decided to head back down. I can’t wait to do this in the spring or summer, all the way to the summit, and see the beautiful view to the pond down below! 🏔
