Day 55: 30.6 miles. A storm rolled in last night right as I was going to sleep, and it rained pretty heavily through the night. When I woke up in the morning it was still raining, so I rolled over and dozed back off . When I woke up the weather had cleared, but I realized I had slept for another 2 hours! I packed up quickly and got moving down the trail. It was a hot and humid day and rain clouds continued to build up. I spent the afternoon trying to stay ahead of a thunderstorm, but by late afternoon it inevitably caught me. A torrential downpour started with some marble sized hail mixed it. The already saturated trail quickly became flowing body of water. I still had quite a few more miles to get in though, so I trudged on. The hard rain didn't last for more than hour but the rest of the day was spent on flooded trail

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom ~ Viktor E. Frankl

NEW BLOG: Roadtripping Norway “Every corner revealed a new and awe-inspiring view, and every night found us sleeping somewhere entirely unique; from a cabin in a valley where looming granite walls could be seen outside the window, to a tent in the snow surrounded by freezing mountains. I’m sure it would take a lifetime to visit all of Norway, but this little corner we explored gave us a wonderful taste of the diversity, wildness and nature that the country has to offer.” Link in bio ✨ Wearing my 45L Altus rucksack by Lowe Alpine #gifted #MoveYourWorld

• Aqui eu compartilho um fragmento do meu dia. Um instante. Um treino (bom ou ruim), uma prova (idem) e acho fantástica toda a troca de experiências que a rede social pode proporcionar. Tudo sobre corrida. • Por que a corrida? Porque correr foi a atividade física que veio para ficar na minha vida. Para uma pessoa que não foi sempre esportista, sair do sedentarismo não pode ser algo passageiro, momentâneo. E essa regularidade é fundamental porque atividade física é sinônimo de ᔕᗩÚᗪƐ. Correr, para mim, é o meu melhor momento. Suar, experimentar o desconforto, percorrer longas distâncias... Se eu puder dar uma dica para quem quiser começar, seria 👉🏻experimente👈🏻. Devagar, aos poucos, descubra qual atividade física é de fato prazerosa. Para você. Por você. • Que a nossa semana seja produtiva e cheia de endorfinas.🙌🏻☺️ #corrologoexisto #vidadecorredor #runinspiration #suacorrida #runhappy #vaicorrer

You may have some idea of what it takes to successfully summit a mountain, not until you’re actually hiking up the mountain's side will you really know. . How somewhere along the way you think it can’t be this hard and this steep all the way up. . How halfway up that mountain you start longing for the end of the climb. . How at some point you curse the bloody fool who’s idea it was to try and summit this beast in the first place. (Wait! Wasn’t that you?!) . But you persevere, because you have an idea of the reward that waits for you when you reach your goal. . PERSEVERANCE! . I used to think I didn’t have any. There have been so many times I've given up. I thought it was enough to be able to say at least I tried. . When I started mountain hiking I found I have plenty of perseverance. Because that’s exactly what it takes to climb a mountain. . You’ve got it too. Even when you think you don’t. . It's why you're as successful as you are. . It has helped you show up every day and do all that needs doing. . Why not apply some of that perseverance to figure out how you want to live your life? . Why not use it to make some changes that get you nearer to a life that you want to be more meaningful? . Want to be challenged and supported along the way? All you have to do is ask! #DareGreatly .

🏔🌍 #WalterBonatti : “È ora di ascoltare se stessi e decidere da che parte stare. Di agire di testa e di cuore e non di pancia. Di pensare al futuro e non a dopodomani. [...] La montagna mi ha insegnato a non barare, a essere onesto con me stesso e con quello che facevo. Se praticata in un certo modo è una scuola indubbiamente dura, a volte anche crudele, però sincera come non accade sempre nel quotidiano. Se io dunque traspongo questi princìpi nel mondo degli uomini, mi troverò immediatamente considerato un fesso e comunque verrò punito, perché non ho dato gomitate ma le ho soltanto ricevute. È davvero difficile conciliare queste diversità. Da qui l'importanza di fortificare l'animo, di scegliere che cosa si vuole essere. E, una volta scelta una direzione, di essere talmente forti da non soccombere alla tentazione di imboccare l'altra. Naturalmente il prezzo da pagare per rimanere fedele a questo «ordine» che ci si è dati è altissimo. Per quanto mi riguarda, il patrimonio spirituale che ne ho ricavato è proporzionale.” (da “Preliminari”) . . . . . . #parcoorsierarocciavrè #cristalliera #alps #italianalps #mountainlife #mountainlove #mountainlover #landscape_focus_on #landscapephotography #naturephotography #wonderful_places #mountain_world #mountainphotography #trekkingitalia #trekkingday #trekkinglife #trekkingadventure #trekkinglovers #trekkingdiaries #trekkingtime #panorama_photo #alpinismo #alpinist #alpinism #italianalps #traveldeeper #paysage #visualsofearth #wonderful_places #choosemountains

Feliz día. E inicio de semana!!!NO ES TU APTITUD, SINO TU ACTITUD LO QUE DETERMINA TU ALTITUD LA VIDA ES COMO subir y bajar una MONTAÑA, donde tus METAS E ILUSIONES SON LA CIMA alta e intimidante que observas desde el punto de partida. Ante las caídas, los resbalones y los malos momentos por nuestra mente, ya sea por miedo al fracaso o por falta de voluntad, muchas veces ha rondado la idea de darnos por VENCIDOS, lamentándonos, yo no voy a ser capaz, esto nos es para mí, soy un fracaso, ect. achacando todas estas falsas acusaciones a que no tenemos las aptitudes adecuadas. Olvidando que el precio a pagar por ello a veces es demasiado elevado, NO SIEMPRE HAY SEGUNDAS OPORTUNIDADES. La forma en la que afrontamos lo que nos ocurre determina el acontecimiento siguiente, uno puede tener unas aptitudes físicas o mentales extraordinarias pero UNA ACTITUD NEGATIVA y derrotista le llevará irremediablemente al FRACASO VIVIR no ES UNA CUESTIÓN de aptitud, tus éxitos y tus fracasos, tus subidas y bajadas vienen determinadas por tu ACTITUD. ¿CUÁL ES TU VALOR COMO PERSONA?, Víctor kuppers explica que el valor de una persona es igual a (C+H)*A, done la C son nuestros conocimientos, la H son nuestras habilidades, esas aptitudes que poseemos innatas o que hemos adquirido a través del esfuerzo, la dedicación, el aprendizaje y por último esta la ACTITUD, LA PIEZA MAS IMPORTANTE de la ecuación ya que la "C" suma , la "H" suma pero la "A" multiplica, porque es TU ACTITUD la que marca la diferencia, la que hace que luches por aquello que quieres, la que hace que te levantes cuando caes y es la que te otorga valor como persona. Es." TU MANERA DE SER" Por suerte no somos perfectos, somos únicos y especiales, Y ES TU ACTITUD, TU MANERA DE SER la que te hará dar esos PASOS aparentemente insignificantes que te iran ACERCANDO A TU CIMA. 🧡 #allaboutadventures #wildernessnation #wanderwomeninc #hike #hiker #trailrunning #mountainside #mountaineering #outdoorwoman #allwilderness #mountainpeopleunite #outdoorlife #extremo #choosemountains #adventureladies #wildernessbabes #parquelallovizna #bucketlistadventures #runningterritory #wildernessculture #andysfi #adventurenthu

Sometimes I’m just awestruck at the beauty of the lines we get to climb, like this beautiful crack on Bornholm with the foggy lake behind. . But just how selfish are these pursuits ultimately? What does it mean to pursue your passions? How do we stay accountable?

In the very centre of #Berlin , this view marks the edge of what once was #WestBerlin , with the #Wall running just a short distance to the left. On the site of today’s #Hauptbahnhof the old #LehrterBahnhof was the final stop on the #SBahn before #EastBerlin ’s #Friedrichstrasse.

Every now and then you have to get out and do an adventure, this is such a reality for me. Sorry I have been so inactive on here lately, so many things going on that I haven’t had time to post anything 😭 had the craziest adventure down in the South Island for a day this weekend and it has fuelled my passion again and really made me realise that the country I call home is second to none !! New Zealand you are unreal 😍

Words / inspiration by @rupikaur_ 💜 'did you think i was a city big enough for a weekend getaway i am the town surrounding it the one you've never heard of but always pass through there are no neon lights here no skyscrapers or statues but there is thunder for i make bridges tremble i am not street meat i am homemade jam thick enough to cut the sweetest thing your lips will touch i am not police sirens i am the crackle in a fireplace i'd burn you and you still couldn't take your eyes off me cause i'd look so beautiful doing it you'd blush i am not a hotel room. i am home i am not the whiskey you want i am the water you need don't come here with expectations and try to make a vacation out of me' - rupi kaur 📷 Photo: @angi.kim @wildernesswear

Views from my tent last night. First solo backpacking trip was a success 🌅 I never thought I'd be the girl to take charge of her life and follow her dreams.. Growing up my confidence was always low and I held myself back from doing a lot of cool things because of "fear". Fear of failing, fear of standing out, fear of getting hurt, fear of being alone.. I'm starting to realize more and more how much of it all is really just in your head. Instead of talking myself out of doing what I really want to do, I tell myself why I really SHOULD just go for it! When you start believing anything is possible, your dreams become your reality. I've wanted to backpack on the beach since I was 12 years old. Look at me now 😎

Valorar si continuar o regresar.... Quedarte a algo más de mitad de camino.... Decidir dar la vuelta.... ~ Y ahora pensaréis, que putada,no? ~ Putada sería haber continuado y asumir riesgos innecesarios que no hacen falta para transformar tu pasión en un mal día que preferirías borrar. ~ En la montaña cabeza, ella manda y puede convertirte en cuestión de poco rato en uno de los peores días.... ~ Pierde unos segundos en valorar cuando te asalten las dudas del riesgo y decide con actitud lo que realmente te hará feliz. ~ Ayer no hicimos cima, pero fue una gran salida de montaña, risas, buen rollo, disfrute y con ganas de seguir gozando de esta pasión 🙌🏻 ~ WHAT ELSE ❓ @helen_lovemountains @somash_mountain ~ ~ @barrabes @cebe_eyewear @matt.sports @salewa #skiing #ski #nature #mountain #skitouring #snow #mountains #freeride #skitour #skimo #freeski #skimountaineering #mountaineering #alpine #touring #mountainview #mountains #mountainlife #snow #barrabes #pirineos #puremountain #pureadrenaline #alpinist #choosemountains
