Pathways & Possibilities: Nature does a body good

I HOPE TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO PAUSE FOR A MOMENT,
ADMIRE THE CLOUDS, CLIMB THE MOUNTAIN, GAZE AT THE STARS,
TRAVEL TO THE DESTINATION YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO VISIT,
OR JUST GET OUT TO EXPLORE YOUR OWN BACKYARD.

Pathways & Possibilities: Nature does a body good

Jlynn Frazier

This past Sunday, I ran a half marathon at my alma mater (The University of Maine). I have run for a while but could not believe this was my first race of the year. After running a marathon in 2013, I have continued to run races but in a less structured way. Trying to find the balance of pushing myself and leaving room to skip out on everything and just go climb a mountain, hit the road, or jump on my paddle board. I really love running the half marathon. There is just something about 13.1 miles that I just like. It is probably my favorite race length.

It should be no surprise that I have included a running story that has brought me inspiration to continue pushing the boundaries of what is possible and living my outdoor adventure life to the fullest. I am headed to the Whites in New Hampshire this weekend and cannot wait to just soak it all in. Here are a few stories and links that really made me think and brought inspiration to live my adventure life. I hope you enjoy these as much as I have.

Cheers to a fantastic weekend... the first weekend of summer!!

“I never set out to become anything in particular, only to live creatively and push the scope of my experience through adventure and through passion.”

  • No surprise here, but glad to see this article from the Atlantic that spending time in nature is correlated with better mental health, attention, and mood in both children and adults. 
  • Read the inspiring story of Michael Westphal, a Runner With Parkinson's Disease Qualifies for Boston Marathon
  • Dark Side of the Lens came out four years ago. Thanks to the re-share of a 2011 Chase Jarvis' blog post I was able to see it. Wow! Beautiful film with great inspiration and things to think about. One of the many fantastic quotes: "I never set out to become anything in particular, only to live creatively and push the scope of my experience through adventure and through passion." 
Getting up before the sun rises is always hard... esp. when it is super early in the summer. I am never disappointed when I do. This image was taken at 4:55 a.m.
