Here are people who shouldn’t be allowed to hike.

Now that hiking season is over for me (what up snow in the mountains, I don’t want to be in you), it’s time for me to rant about people who hike. We did a bunch of hiking this year and saw a lot of interesting hikers wearing interesting garments.

I’m definitely not an expert in hiking, not by a long shot, but I do have something called common sense that a lot of people on the mountain apparently don’t seem to have. And okay, so hiking common sense is a thing that isn’t expected among humans, but before you go for a hike, maybe enter into the google box ‘hiking for dummies’ or ‘preparing for a hike’ or ‘hiking: are flip flops a thing I should wear?’

Which is a solid segue into person number one who should not be allowed to hike.

On adulting and bagels.

I suck.

That’s very apparent. It’s been about a month since I’ve written and every once in a while I think to myself, self, you should write and maybe not be the worst blogger ever. But then I also think YEAH BUT SITTING AND DOING NOTHING IS ALSO FUN TOO.

Definitely a place that hasn’t helped me in proper sentence writing. I had planned on only having a couple tasters because having more than 2 pints of beer is a hard pass on my gluten disliking stomach.

Yeah, I…absolutely stuck to that….

How I was outrun by a 70 year old man…who was walking.

Apparently the runs I do are full of blog worthy mentionings. Mentionings is not a word. Being outrun by someone is definitely something I have been used to my entire life. I will never win a marathon, hell, I will never win a 5K. I like my running like I like everything else in my life: slow as shit without exerting too much energy. I hate trying.

Carolyn Goes Shopping For Fitness Clothing As If I Don’t Have Enough Already.

There’s a solid title.

Being that I work in ALL things fitness-y and work out a lot, I enjoy wearing fitness clothing basically exclusively. Which is just the best. Tonight, I decided to check out a local watering clothing hole and try some shit on.

Wackiness ensues.

Running, a live tweeting event.

This morning, I went for a run as I’m training for my next 5k on May 13th with the MEC race series. Yeah, I need to train for that shit as I’m horrible at cardio/running/anything that involves going faster than a walking pace. I mean, I WAS horrible at all of this until my major influx of fitnessing since last August.
