When I was 20, my poor health started interfering with my daily life. By 24, it had slipped further, and my doctor told me I may not make it to 50. My parents weren't even 50 yet. That was my wakeup call. It hasn't been an easy journey, but it's definitely been worth it.
I get bored with conventional exercise like running, rowing and lifting weights. I like to be distracted during exercise, as I find it keeps me going longer, especially if I'm enjoying what I'm doing! So, I started with short hikes in pretty places with lots to see. Then I began mountain biking and kayaking. Now I'm into rock climbing and snowshoeing! Let's find something you love that gets you moving!
For me the gym is a place where I get ready for adventures. My eye is not on the elliptical. It is on the mountains I will climb and the rivers I will ride. My hope is that in sharing my adventures with you, I will inspire you to find your own adventures. Let's keep building strength and health together. Then we can share the stories of the exciting places that our bodies take us.
While I will answer fastest if you to comment directly on my blog posts, you can also contact me directly. I love to hear about the challenges that other people are setting for themselves.
Send me a message, and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
