texas roots. the ballet barre raised me. much quirk. believer. animal lover. camp hair enthusiast. dreamer. do’er.
There is nothing better than a cup of black coffee while watching the sun rise in the mountains with your favorite companions who are always down for adventure. Throw in a long day on the trail + a homemade cinnamon roll, and I’m pretty sure that’s what Heaven on Earth is.
Let’s go back to where that transformed. At the time, a working college student + gym rat with a cardio problem, my love for running started on the roads at a city park in Houston during the summer of 2010. That love eventually transitioned onto the trails after following my heart to Colorado. 5 years later my love for adventure and a “go with your gut” mentality led me to whittling down my belongings to fit into 2 storage totes, a Patagonia backpack and has taken me to Flagstaff, Arizona.
My affinity for trail running transformed from racing to iconic trail adventures with the best company I can find. My enthusiasm for adventure continues to grow after every discovery in authenticity, lesson in grit, strength, humility and friendship formed.
No matter if I’m “racing” or out for the adventure, I’m thankful for my journey. Whether it be comparable to buttery smooth single track or that technical rocky stuff that I’m continually striving to get better at. Always go with your gut, lead with love, and say, “YES!” to adventure.
Thank you for reading, and I hope you find something here to take with you. :)
