Packing day. Tomorrow, we depart. I am nervous and excited for the big challenge ahead. I can’t believe we are so close…Honestly, I tend to get pretty bad pre-trip anxiety. To help ease the stress in my mind, I try to make a mantra and visualization. I try not to get too wrapped up in the worry of the future and just focus on one step at a time. For my mantra on this trip, I’m thinking about all of you- the army of support I have- and how that support will propel me up the mountain. I want to show that mountaineering doesn’t need to be elitist- that #MountainsAreForEveryone. That you don’t need to grow up climbing or skiing competitively. You can figure it out and it’s never too late. I’ll do my best to keep you updated along the way! Thanks for all the support and encouragement. Can’t wait to meet the rest of the team from @alpenglowexpeditions! @KEEN #KEENambassador @clifbar #feedyouradventure Photo: @rob.lea
