Fitness comes in many shapes, sizes, and personalities.

One of the main reasons I want to promote 1. WALK 2. HIKE 3. BIKE is because I have a lot of extreme fitness fanatic friends and I don’t buy into that philosophy. Nothing wrong with it, it’s just not for me. I ran track in high school and I was the slowest person on the team. I didn’t really mind being the slowest person on the team, but when my coach finally got super excited cause I ran the 250 meters super fast and he thought I’d “FINALLY” found my niche; I didn’t like the pressure. There was no hiking team, well it was a team of 1 I guess. I always won those events 😉 and the mountains were 2 minutes behind my house. I’ve always had strong legs and I could leg press more than other guys at the gym at the University of Utah. I used to check cause I’d always add more weights than the men twice my size. (I’m a petite female.)  Anyway, I like LOW IMPACT stuff and I want to promote stuff any reasonably healthy person can do. You can walk! If you can walk, then you can hike! Biking is not hard either. If you don’t know how, I bet you could get someone to teach you. Nevertheless, one of my high school running mates turned ultramarathoner posted about this on facebook and I find this article physiologically quite fascinating. I think I have a lot in common with the guy in the article, but he’s a “wee” bit more intense. (I have really low blood pressure and I’m not usually intense!) I was raised in a mile high town and I spent much of my childhood at 10,000 feet. Pretty interesting and very insane! http://www.outsideonline.com/fitness/running/trail-running/FKT-Up-Kilian-Jornet.html?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign
