I have lived in Arizona my whole life. I love running and hiking, and eventually fell in love with the idea of doing a long thru hike. After lots of budgeting and planning I will be attempting to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail in 2019. Although I will likely face some challenging days, I am looking forward to the simplicity of just hiking every day and meeting awesome people along the way. This site will be a place where I can post about my exciting journey.
