Missing My Mountain Time


If you follow my Instagram it probably looks like I live in the mountains; but really, I just don’t think my day to day pictures are as interesting. That’s one problem with social media, people only post curated images because the real stuff is not very interesting. A photo of me eating spaghetti in Ryan’s sweats are not very attractive.…

Warm Winter Hike From Waterton to Glacier


On Friday I snuck over the U.S. border. There’s no wall yet! Ha ha ha. Sorry, that’s my lame attempt at a little political humor. But I did go hiking on the Goat Haunt trail that travels along Waterton Lakes, into the United States to an outpost called Goat Haunt, though I didn’t quite make it all the way. If you…

Boosting my Immune System with Etrexa Immunum


Happy Thanksgiving from Alberta, Canada! Did I mention it’s snowing? Like a lot? Yeah…..   Actually, I’m okay with it because I love snow! I like to bundle up and enjoy the flakes. However, most of my fellow students do not bundle up and walk around campus shivering coatless, toqueless, in wet street shoes. You see, when you’re young and…

Friday Fitness- Gotta Walk the Walk


I’ve been feeling pretty gross lately with the drastic drop in workouts, increased time indoors hunched over a computer or textbook, and all the JUNK I’ve been eating during my late night study jams. But as I said before, I’ve been trying to tell myself it’s ok to do less if this is a particular short period in my life…
