All in Fitness Outdoors

Everything has changed and yet I am more me than I've ever been - Iain Thomas

I started this blog years ago when fitness became a huge focus in my life. I've always been active but each year my passion and inspiration grows. I recently had the pleasure of reconnecting with an old friend that asked me why I no longer pursued my writing. A million excuses ran through my mind and I simply replied, "I think about it all of the time but never make it a priority." We discussed how it could help others which has always been its sole purpose. I dismissed this thought immediately but after sharing ideas I came to realize - maybe it will, perhaps it won't. Either way if it inspires one person to do more, well then... it's worth it.

It's not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.

I haven't blogged for awhile well...because I've been doing this thing you call living.  Our society consists of the phone to face concept where you're walking down the street "phone to face" sitting at lunch "phone to face" hanging out with a group of people and there you have it "phone to face" in a circle.  You get the point. This "P2F" lifestyle is something that has become second nature to everyone, not just the usual culprits who get blamed for modern societal trends - us millennials. 

For some time now I've become quite blasé and in need of a new challenge. My personality requires mental stimulation and experiences that on a certain level scare the $*@* out of me. Whether it be mental or physical this taste of fear is exactly what I long for. One my favorite hobbies is scuba diving and since I happen to be land locked I turned to the other extreme. I took advantage of my current altitude and decided to climb mountains. There are 58 of these majestic peaks in Colorado us locals refer to as "14ers". For a month I immersed myself in nature as much as my schedule would allow, removed my P2F position, and redirected my energy toward something a tad more inspiring.
