My First 10K!

Hike to Quartz Peak

If I ever decide to do a strenuous hike the weekend after a week-long illness, someone please shoot me. Or at least talk some sense into me. This past Sunday I did something really insane, even by my standards. I went on a 6 mile hike with 3000′ elevation gain after being on a liquid diet […]
