I am a girl who loves mountains, changing seasons, running, true backpacking, strong coffee, and knitting with high quality yarn.
When something bad happens, you have three choices: let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you.
The purpose of life is to discover and develop your gift. The meaning of life comes from sharing your gift with others. - David Viscott

I belong to this wonderful running in club in the Bronx, NY, where I lived for 11 years (yep, sounds weird for a birth of a trail runner), and back in a days they welcomed me in, embraced in their friendship and let me know I am a runner. That was an unforgettable experience and I will never forget it.
