Hiking New Mexico

When I have the opportunity to get in a beautiful hike – especially in 70 degree and sunny weather with no humidity – I jump at it. When we were planning out our travel for the Brooks Altitude Camp trip (<—check out that post first if you missed it), a few of us decided that rather than flying home first thing on Sunday, we’d stick Continue Reading …

Summiting Mt. Rainier in Summer

Hey guys! Since my brother Steve’s last guest post about his epic winter ascent of Mt. Hood was such a hit, he’s back to share another guest post, this time about summiting Mt. Rainier last summer! I’ll let him take it away – thanks for sharing with us, Steve! (Psst: while you’re at it, check out my recap from the Mt. St. Helens summit hike Matt Continue Reading …

Run + Hike

Morning guys – it’s back to work today after a fun long weekend! As I mentioned, Matt had the day off yesterday for the holiday and I wanted to take most of the day off, too, so I got up before him and had a quick breakfast before doing a couple hours of work. On the menu a pumpkin muffin (x2 – went back for another because they are small) + 2 Continue Reading …

An Outdoorsy Weekend

Hey friends! Matt and I stuck around town this past weekend, and our adventures had one main theme: be outside as much as possible! I kicked off the outdoorsy-ness on Friday by biking over to Edge Yoga for a noon yoga class with Heather for a nice break in the workday.

Summer/Winter Weekend

This weekend, DC couldn’t decide whether it was late summer/early fall or dead of winter! We took advantage of the late summer/early fall portion of the weekend on Saturday with a hike! It was phenomenally nice out – mid 60’s with a nice warm sun and clear blue skies. We headed up to Sugarloaf Mountain in Maryland with friends Shane, Continue Reading …
