i can’t believe this is only our second week of training, and technically this is pre-training (whatever that means) before our super intense 16-week training program that ends with us hiking for 12 hours with 50lbs. on our backs… somehow the picture of julia roberts in runaway bride falling backwards after she tries on her pack for everest is looking rather realistic! but alas, we will push on! i love that i get to drag someone through this with me, thanks pia :)

thank you to everyone that has donated up till now. i am humbled by everyone’s generosity!
