Turning #bigmtndreams into specific mountain goals. Currently, I’m training to run a 40 mile/64 km trail race at the end of June (my first ultramarathon), compete in a 70 mile/112 km bike race mid-July and climb and ski Cho Oyu, the sixth highest peak in the world in September. I’m nervous to even write about these goals because I’m scared I might not succeed. But sometimes you’ve gotta try something ambitious and take it one day at a time, keeping in mind there are lessons in failure as well. It’s a lot to train for and it’s been challenging to manage the training load. •#bigmtndreams is my bigger vision of giving myself the tools to ascend peaks around the world by skis, foot or bike and test my limits of endurance. It’s bigger than a yearly project. It’s a lifelong journey to keep growing my skill set and evolving as an athlete. I like to pick challenges that push me out of my comfort zone so I can approach the mountains through the eyes of a student. There’s always something new to learn! •Thanks for following along and for your support and encouragement along the way. I’m excited to share the upcoming adventures with you.
