It's been awhile since I've posted...it's been busy, y'all! This weekend was another epic training weekend and another weekend where we've had to work around the rain.  The original plan was to run Sat and bike Sun.  Mother Nature didn't want to cooperate, so we had to adjust.  I had to be home by noon on Sat, so I rode 25 miles in my neighborhood at 5 am.  Then, I loaded up the bike and headed to Carl Barton park to meet up with my favorite tri peeps for another 50-ish miles (it was 48). The peeps kept going and got in 75 miles.  It was windy, it was rainy here and there and we were all covered in road grime, but we got it done!  The Ironman journey continues....

Creativity is a basic biological drive to engage in meaning conversations with myself and the world around me.  Asking my higher self โ€œWhatโ€™s ready to be created today?โ€
. 
From obedience training on the trail at 6 am (every morning for 28 days straight) to dissembling a microwave to locate the malfunctioned relay and attempt to repair the ancient unit... creating and healing as oneโ€”a liberating empowerment @diycave.

There's no better way to spend a rare Sunday afternoon off than exploring beaches and rockpools with the best adventure buddy I could want.
.
We took a trip to Dunbar, which isn't too far from us. Having grown up pretty much smack in the middle of England, the beach was always "too far." Being able to hop in our mighty Claude (that's the car) and be at a beach in less than half an hour is still so novel to me.

The Treaty Oak is the last surviving member of the Council Oaks, a grove of 14 trees that served as a sacred meeting place for Comanche and Tonkawa Tribes. Foresters estimate the Treaty Oak to be about 500 years old and, before its vandalism in 1989, the tree's branches had a spread of 127 feet

My new objective for this spring. Gonna try to bring my drone and snag some good footage of the process summiting. 
Took this photo after an amazing first time skiing in Courmayeur. Definitely became my favorite resort in Italy. .

Nothing is impossible when I want to fulfill a dream.  A lot of people tell me that I can't do it, that I don't have what it takes.  If it is in my heart and I feel it, there is nothing that will stop me.  It is like the sun - I can't block it: it will shine regardless, if that is what I want.

Feb 25. Captain's log. 
Woke up yesterday to flock of- what I thought was seagulls or geese? They made the most beautiful sound. I got up, filled my coffee, and as the sun rose-decided to forgo my usual classical music and writing session...to just sit out on the front porch and listen. The birds were alive, singing as they flew around me. Oh the sweet sound of dawn in Sandbridge. Later, on my way to the beach the sweet lady that runs the place I stay at asked me if I heard the trumpet swans flying over. Trumpet swans! Not just any morning, not just any trip. I will miss this wild and beautiful place. ๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ๐Ÿฆ

5-23 Trail Day 28: miles 371.52-383.89 .
.
.
I knew today would be hard the moment I woke up. Ambitious 19 mile uphill day planned starting with Mount Bayden Powell, and my knee wasn't happy after that bit of roadwalking yesterday. So for our first 4 miles we went from 6,400ft to 9,200ft. .
.
The first two miles, even though I was slow, weren't bad. But after hitting the water with @taylormichaelallee, @middle_of_nowhere_pct, @paede_g, and @schneeebi I started really having trouble. Seemed like I had a tendon in the back of my right knee that was inflamed, so every step was difficult. Started counting down switchbacks when I had only 22 left. .
.
Also hit our first bits of snow. Not a lot, but enough to get a feel for how slushy snow is difficult to climb up. Peak was .14 off trail, so today I summited my first mountain! Taylor and the Swiss had a snowball fight and @orimoskowitz left his precious maps at the peak. No one realized in time they belonged to Ori though, so it affectionately became a matter of 'Hike your own hike, fucker!' -Jan
.
.
Continued on to meet everyone at water 6 miles later, but my knee was toast. I was limping very, very badly. Trail was sandy, and there were a lot of views. Went through a bit of a burn area as well. .
.
With the yellow frog closure coming up, we were planning on doing the 20 miles around it. But with my knee, I decided to give it a break and do the shorter 4 mile detour with a bit of a roadwalk. The group went on to get more miles under their hipbelts and I set up at the campground with the cousins @eml002, @theflowdbj, @zapzach22, and @simonwhosays. .
.
@gregorio_lorenz stopped by for dinner of lots of Idahoan potatoes before going on while I tried to stretch out my leg. Had a campfire night with the cousins and headed to bed to try to rest up. #sleepisoftenamagichealer #hopefullythistime .

Picture from Whistler but we went skiing at @cypressmtn today where we were greeted with  over 20cm of fresh snow. It was PERFECT! (Apart from a broken loft meaning half the mountain was closed but you can't have everything...)๐Ÿ—ปโ„โ›ท On a separate note, don't these runs that make up 7th Heaven over on Blackcomb Mountain look a little like the @fatface logo?

looking back at 6 years ago Kelsey like whaaaatt ๐Ÿ™ˆ
i was 20+ pounds overweight (yet working out and running long distances ALL the time). uncomfortable in my skin. a chronic binge eater of anything and everything. i had asthma, acid reflux, and high cholesterol at 18 years young!! ๐Ÿ˜ฃ
i was trying the paleo diet but thought it was okay to survive on frozen pizzas, bacon ranch covered french fries, and quesadillas i made in the microwave... as long as i didnโ€™t eat breakfast ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ
fast forward to now... where my views of healthy eating have made a COMPLETE 180. ๐Ÿงš๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
when i went vegan it was a challenge for me at first because i didnโ€™t really know how to cook and wasted tons of money on eating out. ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ
BUT since dialing in on my nutrition habits iโ€™ve learned how to fuel my body properly. iโ€™ve learned the importance of meal prep. iโ€™ve learned breakfast is the most important meal and my body needs constant nourishment with whole, unprocessed, REAL foods in order to thrive. this SIMPLE shift in my eating habits has had a HUGE impact on my life. not just in how well i sleep or how much energy i have, but i can stay outside harder and longer without getting as tired. or sore ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
PLUS iโ€™m not in danger of falling off track because i have a team of amazing individuals supporting me along the way ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธโœจ
as much as i love winter, iโ€™m pretty stoked thinking about not having to put on 4 layers of clothing before i go outside. ๐Ÿ˜‚ summer will be here before ya know it! iโ€™m not letting excuses or laziness hold me back from staying healthy and getting outdoors. this year im going to flaunt those abs iโ€™ve always wanted ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป
and YOU can too! iโ€™m SUPER stoked to be able to share these same tools with you. this weekend is your last chance to enroll for my Spring Into Summer Bootcamp. there are only 8 spots left so grab them while you still can! donโ€™t let winter get the best of you ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ #likeamountaingirl #transformation #thisisme #skiingislife #springintosummer #strongnotskinny #weightloss #vegangains #optoutside #optoutdoors #takeahike #coloradogirl
