How to Hike Colorado’s Longs Peak

The difficulty of the jumbled rock-piled trail escaped my mind as my body tried to inhale as much oxygen as possible at an elevation of 13,000 feet. The sun rose an hour ago and the air felt slightly warmer than in the beginning of our hike at 2 a.m. Even for the middle of August, we are lucky to have had prepared for the freezing temperatures.

Zombie related shows and games have been comingRead More

With fourteen years of soccer playing and tennis all throughout high school under my belt, getting to college was kind of a shocker to the sport side of me. Gone where the days where I could find time to kick around the ball or rally for hours on end, or have 7-7 tiebreaker matches. Or even sleep. I was determined not to be another victim in the freshman fifteen statistic. So I took up running. First unexpected thing – I was not very good at it. I had self-righteously believedRead More
