Tough Mudder New England 2014

This experience was by far the hardest physical endeavor I have ever attempted and accomplished. Last July, my little brother and I rolled up to Mount Snow and seriously questioned our judgement and sanity. We were decked out in our best workout gear and covered in war paint.

The race began with a pump-up speech on camaraderie, teamwork, and our veterans. Then BANG, it all began. Up and down, and up and down the ski slopes of Mount Snow till we felt as though our legs would collapse beneath us. The obstacles were challenging and truly required help from each other as well as the teams around us. Complete strangers were more than happy to help any and everyone that needed it.

The entire time I was saying “never again.” Now, I can’t wait to do another!

Bucket List

Great news!

This evening I initiated the creation of a Bucket List page compiling numerous ambitions and goals I wish to achieve throughout my mortal life.

The beauty of the list is limitless, continual growth. Even as I check off completed goals I will constantly be adding new desires, both random and meaningful. Each achievement will warrant an elaborate post, smiley face sticker, and maybe even a cake.

I look forward to all of you joining me on my journey.
