"I love new adventures and new trails but this year really pushed me to explore trails closer to home. I hiked my hometown trail 15 times. I used to think of this trail as easy and boring. This year, I got to see it change throughout the seasons and realized how beautiful it truly is. It became a sanctuary for me. Hiking it feels like going home."

"I think hiking is for every body. I'm not thin or the most fit but I know that I have the determination to finish any trail. I love challenging myself and making time for hiking which is good for the soul."
