“The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” -Eleanor Roosevelt
It wasn’t all that long ago that I was reading in front of a cozy fireplace in a ski lodge on the Rocky Mountains while Adam snowboarded his heart out, or that I was chilling poolside in sunny Ft. Myers with my best friends. These adventures between races are so important to me because they keep my creativity flowing and keep me emotionally grounded.
Adventure is a pretty subjective word, but to me it means anything that is exciting and new. I used to be someone who preferred retail therapy and buying material items over traveling, but I never felt whole. It wasn’t until recently that I discovered what was missing was true adventure and exploration of the outdoors. The idea of life lived to the fullest excites me more than anything else nowadays, other than winning races. I hope that my desire for making as many memories as possible outdoors inspires you to live a fulfilling life too.
