What’s your biggest remaining challenge?

Rekindling my love for being outdoors

One of the things I’m most grateful for as I get more fit and more active is that I have been reminded just how much I love being outside. I love the freedom. The clarity. The deep spiritual connection. The time to think and daydream. The lack of technology. I feel relieved being outside. (Well, except for bugs. Not big on bugs. Snakes are OK, but bugs are yucky.)

My favorite walking memories include day hikes in Davos, Switzerland:

Also, locally, at one of our lakes here with my dogs. (This was before marriage and kids.) I’m excited because I’m taking the family to one of my favorite trails at a nearby lake this weekend, if the weather cooperates. And I’m excited because the kids are excited.

I guess that leads into another thing I’m very grateful for — that my kids are enjoying being out on the trails so much. I love sharing that with them.
