Hiking over 1,800 miles on the Appalachian Trail (AT) was the most mentally and emotionally demanding, yet fulfilling adventures I have partaken in to this date. The never ending monologue, roots, rocks, and mud, but inner peace only achieved by removing ones self from society, becoming a hermit, an outlier, several socioeconomic rings below your accustomed existence. I am currently taking a break from the trail to save it for when I need it again.
Running is my new jam
No matter how much focus is spiralling towards race-day, ultimately what I love about running is the every-day training fit into a busy day. A break from the everyday norm. Time to turn off your brain, fall forward and catch yourself.
