Happy Thanksgiving to you all! May you have a day filled with fun, gratitude, relaxation, and…food. Great food. Enjoy every single bite. I tend to have Thanksgiving be a splurge day, and I eat pretty much anything and everything that’s up for grabs, figure out a way to have stuffing in each bite, and wake up wishing I could just eat the pecan pie for breakfast. I must confess that I also totally kick my butt in the gym the day before, and go on a run the morning of my beloved feast. It makes smothering every single bite that I can in gravy, just that more enjoyable.

Life and fitness is all about balance, and finding yours. So give thanks for good health, family, friends, holidays…and pecan pie.

One that can be coerced by a  fresh pair of stretchies from time to time. So buy that new workout ensemble you’ve been eying. It’ll give you one less excuse to skip on fitness. Think of it as an investment in your health. You deserve it!

Back to Pack | Hiking Essentials A series on finding adventure, stoke, and a killer workout in the Great Outdoors by Johnie Gall

burtonbackpack-645
It’s not often I take style cues from Dora the Explorer, but the girl knew the value of a good backpack. I have a great big 60-liter one for overnight backpacking trips, a tiny little bag for mountain biking, and a waterproof dry bag for sailing.

So what was I missing? A good ol’ normal backpack. I haven’t had a regular-sized bag since I was slinging textbooks and locker combinations! (more…)
