So, today I did something that actually scared me - I created a Facebook group called, "Toward the Mountaintop Inch By Inch." Why did I do this? Well, there are a lot of reasons - and I'm going to explain all of them in a video, because that's a lot more exciting than reading about it - but the bottom line is this - I want to create a community for people like me. I want the community that I would have wanted 15 years ago when I was struggling with my health, out of shape and had ZERO clue what to do in the mountains. I want a community of people that is inspired and empowered to get out and make their lives extraordinary - in big and little ways. And so, I decided to create it. It was a little scary, because I thought that maybe nobody would join the group - but gradually people are trickling in - and guess what?? I'm doing a giveaway in the group of three of my absolute FAVORITE items:
A Good to Go Backpacking Meal for two (Thai Curry flavor!)
Andrew Skurka's book, "The Ultimate Hiker's Gear Guide" (literally, THE BEST hiking/gear book ever)
and a Platypus 1 Liter soft water bottle.
Friggin' amazing, peeps!! I am so excited for this next chapter and whatever it becomes - truthfully, I don't know what's next, but I'm going to keep climbing toward that mountaintop - inch by inch.
P.S. Don't you love how flattering the "still shots" from YouTube are?
