Days 114 to 117 – Full On Forgiveness

Days 101 to 105 The Good Fear – FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out)

Days 44 to 47 – Rest and Backcountry Skiing (not an oxymoron!)

Yeehaw! When you need to rest, rest. It’s so much easier living full on when your have the energy to do it. I did NOTHING Days 44 and 45 except sleep in, get a massage, read, and drive to a sweet backcountry Alaskan powder hut. I went to bed those nights and slept HARD. The […]
