Hiking without knowing where the heck you’re going is my one of my favorite things to do (ill-advised though it may be). On my last trip to Colorado, the game plan was to drive toward some tall mountains and see what happened. We ended up in Idaho Springs, a quaint old mining town, then winded our way even higher up towards a few trails. All I wanted was to get to a peak, and peak we did on Chief Mountain. It was breathtaking […]
Devil’s Backbone Nature Trail near Loveland, Colorado is quite the sight. The protruding rocks poking their jagged edges along the hillside tell an old story that only geology is able to share. It doesn’t look too shabby dressed in fall, does it?!
This was the first time I’ve spent much time in Brooklyn. Ya know, it feels a lot like Chicago (with a great bonus view of Manhattan). That being said, I really enjoyed it! On this trip, I busted out my Winter Roshes and a Nike Dry Fit Hoodie.
I have thus declared October my adventure month of 2015. I’ll be traveling so much that I want to soak up what little time I have in Chicago. It’s been quite lovely here–I just had to share these shots with you. Now off I go! (p.s. Happy 500th Post from for-the-love-of-nike!!!!!)
I can’t believe Labor Day has come and gone. My grip has yet to loosen on summer 2015. At least I starting saying my goodbyes to my favorite season with friends. We went to Kentucky Lake, drank too much, ate good food, swam a bit, and cruised around. Remember the Tee I sported last week? Take a look at that same shirt styled another way with a few more designs. Check ‘em out here! And don’t forget my favorite flip flops of […]
Glacier National Park is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been in my life. It’s made up of around a million gorgeous acres spanning the upper portion of Montana all the way up to Canada. Glacial movements a really long time ago created the natural wonders of the area. If you know me, you know rocks are one of my great loves. Notice the pigment in the pictures above of the giant boulders and rock fragments. WOAH. The […]
I would post Montana pictures everyday if I could. Here are a few more snap shots from my trip. I thought I’d share a few of the travel hacks I’ve picked up over the years. The idea is to pack as light and smart as possible. Keep it simple and only bring along necessary items. Think about it, when you take a trip– what’s important to you? my travel essentials: a comfy pair of sneakers that are good for lots […]

Yellowstone is one of the oldest national parks in the world. President Ulysses S. Grant signed it into law in 1872. The park stretches across Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho, with scattered geothermic features spread across the land. Old Faithful, the most famous of the attractions, is a geyser that erupts every 91 minutes. I have to say that my favorite site in the park is The Grand Prismatic Spring, which is appropriately named. It’s the 3rd largest hot spring in the world, […]

I’m a travelholic, I admit. But this weekend, I actually stayed in town. That left time to act like a tourist in sunny Chicago. On Sunday, I went to the the Lincoln Park Conservatory, The Chicago History Museum, and Lincoln Hotel for a drink at The J. Parker. The Lincoln Park Conservatory: This paradise under glass was built in the late 1800s. Room after room is categorized and filled with different plants. It’s steamy, beautiful, and overwhelming to think how […]

Well lookout for the craziest zipline/obstacle course ever, smack dab in the middle of Outer Banks in North Carolina. From shimmying across ropes, to jumping from one barrel to another, to kayaking in the air, endurance and strength is put to the ultimate test. It was excruciatingly fun and terrifying, and I’d do it again in a heartbeat. what I wore: Nike Roshe Runs from the Gradient Pack, a Nike logo Tee, Gap leggings from the Gap Fit line, and […]
