Hiked up here in the dark, slightly questioning my sanity at 6am on a weekday. Felt like a better decision as the sun came up.

It is important to create an overall nutrition plan that begins the first day of training and continues well after completion of your last event. This concept is called Nutrition Periodization.
These nutrition cycles are broken into 4 blocks.
1. Season 2. Post Season/Recovery 3. Off-Season 4. Pre-Season
Want details for each of these blocks? Check out the link in BIO by our MTN RDY Nutritionist (@erin.m.butler

Embrace your newness.
It’s ok to admit you’re learning.
We all start somewhere.
Whether you’re training for a new job, learning a new sport or learning how to cook or meditate, be patient with yourself. Know that it’s ok to embrace being new. Know that down the line you won’t be new anymore and it will be some else’s first day. We’re so lucky to have such easy access to so much information, it’s kinda scary actually. But don’t be afraid to use it to your advantage. Explore. Be humble. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Keep refining and, don’t be afraid to make mistakes as you learn and grow. 🤓

Who else is excited for the winter season? 🏂🗻🏕
When I was young vacations looked like hot days on a boat, desert lakes, jet skis, Coke in cans, burnt noses, we were on the basic river rat program.
We camped in tents with no running water or electricity. I never needed much, just my trusty caboodle filled with small curiosities and candy. We cooked freshly caught fish on burning fires, we played in the dirt and waterskied. I would hold the orange flag. Then be lifted by my life-jacket and thrown in the lake, against my will, when it was my turn. Waterskiing wasn’t an optional sport.
I have mixed feelings looking back at these family vacations.
I was never asked what I wanted to do, or if I even wanted to waterski. I think I did? It’s hard to tell. Looking back, it seemed fun. But I have never waterskied as an adult, nor have I driven a boat on a lake. **My hope that my kids feel heard on this trip. They get a say in where we go. They get a say in what we do. They get a say if they want to be thrown into the lake by their life-jacket. My assumption is no. No one wants that.
Being in Northern Arizona, and Southern Utah, surrounded by red rocks and the Colorado River, all these desert memories are coming back to me.
I want to drink warm Coke out of the can, I want to hold the flapping orange flag hard against the wind. And strangely enough, I want to waterski?
Last week Dad and I went on a quick fishing/hiking vacation in Mammoth and Bishop. I loved getting to show him trails I’ve hiked before and blazing new trails with him. We hiked 18 miles in 2 days (sorry, Dad!), fished in several alpine lakes, and even fished in Lake Mary while it was snowing (and freezing!). I hadn’t fished since I was probably 10 years old, and I really enjoyed my dad teaching me how to set up the rig and cast out. Fishing brings you into the present, forcing you to be patient, quiet, and sense every movement on your line. I’m not always the most patient person, but hiking (and now fishing) has truly taught me that virtue.

I went out for an early morning paddle hoping to get lucky with the foggy fall conditions I love here in Montana. I love the Hindman Flannel from Southern Marsh - great for those early mornings on the lake. It's very comfortable and I love the pattern! They have a great selection of other flannels. Check them out! #southernmarsh #somarsh #ad

One reason I love Zion so much is because of spots like this
