"It’s not about how hard you can hit; it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward."
~Rocky Balboa
________________
I'm not a boxing fan, but the analogy rings true (and I do love the film). Having just returned from attempting to run a hundred mile race, and not succeeding, has put things in new perspective. The event prior to this race, the one that hit me hard, didn't knock me down. I am moving forward. During the race and the days after, new ideas have blossomed and I have goals to reach. And I couldn't have done it without the help of friends, new and old. Thank you for being there for me this weekend @valerienussbaumer @thekinginthenorthportland @gravityhrocks @pbrennen ·

"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"

We take a break from my little life story to announce the next big adventure. This Thursday my friends and I will be running around Mount Adams. It's one of the most challenging routes I have done in my few years of running on trails since there are miles of unmarked trail on the east side. Adams will be the second volcano that I've run around this year. Next week I'll try and make it three. ·

We listened to @syskpodcast ‘s episode “Why Are So Many Disembodied Feet Washing Ashore in British Columbia” because we forgot our bear bell and it was definitely not the episode we should have been listening to on a hike by ourselves. (FYI - 100 men died while building the BC Hydro dam this very trail was built around.) #scaredtheshitoutofme #SYSK #shotoniphone

Regular visitors to my gallery know I don't post pictures of myself too often. And you also know that I don't get personal or intimate about myself. Well, let's dig deep.
·
For the first six months of the year, I had been in a haze. I was either just going through the motions or just trying to scrape by.  There were events that caused this, but they don't matter. What matters is the result of the events. My running has suffered which means I'm not in the shape I want to be for myself. What was once my release from all the internal struggles and a reprieve from the world had become the opposite. And when you are supposed to be training for a big race, this is the last thing one could ever want.
·
Then enter friends and family.  People in our lives that are there for us no matter what. People that will listen to anything we have to say and truthfully tell you what you need to hear to make things all right.  And over the course of the last few months that is exactly what has happened, culminating with a visit to Hood River by my parents and a visit to Montana to see my uncle. The metaphorical haze is lifted. ·
This means I have less than a month to get ready to run my longest race to date. I will be completely under trained but I'm going out there to do what I can and have the best time with amazing people. Also, my plans for next year are getting more concrete by the day and I can't wait to share that with all of you as well.
·
Moral of the story?  Lean on your friends and family. Trust that they love you as much as you love them. And don't be afraid to share how you feel. ·
Thank you for reading and we will be back to our regular posting tomorrow.

Watching a waterfall is one the most exhilarating pieces of nature. It's uncontrollable and wild. Dangerous and beautiful. And full of life. What is your favorite aspect of nature? ·

This week for my 34th birthday I hiked 34 miles+ on a 3 day backpacking trip around Mt Rainier, got myself 34 mosquito bites and spent some quality time with my 3rd and 4th favorite sisters (jk I don’t have favorites).
.
I’ve spent many birthdays at Mt Rainier but this trip we really got to know each other. Turns out she’s kind of ruthless. .

A click from last week during golden hour in Central Oregon.  It is really nice to see a park that is well used and popular with the locals, and Smith Rock definitely delivers each time I visit.

Everybody is breaking grounds; but you must breakthrough!

Everybody scratching it; but you must scratch it hard!

Everybody is going, but you must keep going extra miles!

"I know it seems hard sometimes but remember one thing. Through every dark night, there's a bright day after that. So no matter how hard it get, stick your chest out, keep ya head up.... and handle it."

Words to never forget. Life can be hard, disappointing, or downright unfair at times. It's how you see the light the day after that makes us stronger.  What do you do to lift your spirits when they are at their lowest??

"what is it with you and sunflowers he asks

i point to the field of yellow outside
sunflowers worship the sun i tell him
only when it arrives do they rise
when the sun leaves
they bow their heads in mourning
that is what the sun does to those flowers
it's what you do to me"

Lots of people about in the bush yesterday and decided to find more off the beaten path destinations for the afternoon.  This spot was really packed for the long Easter weekend.

Fantastic evening run. Finally able to run in shorts and a short-sleeve shirt! ☀️ 2 weeks until the Lumberjack 100, my first attempt at a 100 mile race. This has been a dream of mine for 3 years but through setbacks and doubts I never made it to the starting line. Not this time! So excited to take on this challenge! 💪
