I'd love to visit in fall or winter!
Being self reliant outdoors and the awareness of our real vulnerability to these harsh landscapes helps to open my eyes. It allows me to truly see the light stretching down the valley, the remarkable red dust on my clothes and know, life IS magic.
After hundreds of miles and a full day of driving, many pitt stops and repeats of playlists we got to the havasu trailhead. Regardless I was surprised by how obtainable this seemingly unobtainable trip was. The hike in ... Well we busted that out in 3 hrs. All the waterfalls were close and almost vacant in august. Gorgeous!!
It was the planning that almost had me fooled. I was on the phone for 4 days before I was able to get our permits and there was only two options left to choose from! Then finding overnight sitters for the first time wasn't easy. So a big thanks to the collected flexibility of my family. 😘 here is to some well earned memories with friends. And my hive five to those planning their trip✋
Honestly ? I don't always want to exercise. Some days I'd rather put my Nike''s back on the shelf and shut the door.
Those are the days I specifically decide " its a exercise outside day". This is because I know being outside is contagious and it will change my down day to a rewarding day.

I'm a mom. An athlete. A wife. A teacher. Etc.
Which comes first in my life? Whichever wakes up first.
None of us can be defined by one word. And hopefully we take pride in more than just one thing in our life.
BALANCE. It really is essential. .
Im not a great morning person unless I'm camping, so today I was surprised by how much of the world was awake at 6 am! I saw some deer , ran into a fox, and hid from a lurking van all before the sun came over the mountains! 🏔

Why do you love to run? .
Lets be honest...running isn't everyones cup of tea. It might be your nemesis or for some their life blood. But one of the many reasons I enjoy running is it's something I can do anywhere I go. This eliminates excuses and makes it possible to see even more scenery from the places I visit. 📷Just filling my cup on a windy day.☀🍃☁
Its always safer to hit the trails with a friend.
I love hiking with my pal Michelle! We go fast, or slow.. depending on the day and laugh a whole lot. . makes for good mtn lion repellent👍
