I’ve been super non-posty lately because of overwhelming busyness over the past several months. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m involved with SheJumps and have been in the midst of getting events set up across the Southeast!
I’ve also been training to climb a mountain!
For months I’ve been hiking every weekend with a pack FULL of water bottles to get ready to attempt to summit Rainier.
Unfortunately, weather stood in the way of us reaching the summit. The guides said it was a no-go when the conditions turned to ~80 mph winds, rain, sleet, and no visibility. It was awesome being back in WA and a great experience being on Rainier though! I’ll be back at it with my brothers next year for round 2!!!

On one of my recent hikes, I made a new friend. A butterfly friend. It landed on me 20+ times, so I had to kindly let it know that it would be smashed by my backpack (inadvertently) if it didn’t flutter away. That along with the erratic flailing that followed sent my butterfly friend on its way.
(The little white thing on my shoulder is the butterfly!)

I’ve been named the Southeast SheJumps Regional Coordinator! I’ve written about this organization before, but now have a larger part in it and am so thrilled and honored to be involved!
Check out my introduction on the Southeast page here. And get involved! You can reach out to me or your region’s coordinator for more info.
Here’s me doing my best at modeling our shirt featuring the amazingly awesome Girafficorn! I’m real good at modeling.

I have a way of convincing myself that all injuries I have should be ignored. Maybe that’s why I’ve had several surgeries in the last few years that have required surgery.
In case you were wondering, I haven’t always listened to doctors either. Especially when I was wrestling! After my compartment syndrome surgery I have learned to actually listen to my body and back off when I need to back off – recovering from surgery isn’t fun and I don’t want any repeats.
