Mountains, Gandalf! Mountains!

I have a lot of mountains that I want to climb. Literally. I spend a lot of my time on the internet looking at pictures of gorgeous places that other people have left their couches to go explore. And that, more than anything else, has led to the creation of this blog. I want to travel. I want to go on long hikes through incredible places around the world that are far removed from civilization. I want to climb mountains. I want to kayak down rivers. I want to learn to surf. There are a million places I’d love to see and experiences that I want to have.

But to do these things, you need to be at a certain level of fitness. If I tried to do most of those things right now, I would probably be very sad at my own body for holding me back. I crave the freedom that comes from not being held back.

That is my current goal. I want to get healthier and in better shape so that I can go out and truly live, rather than sit online and look at pictures of other people doing those things.

In other news, I really really really want Spring to get here. While trying to figure out what to write about tonight I felt restless. I wanted to go for a walk. Or bike ride. But it’s cold and everything is glazed in ice right now. So I settled for wandering aimlessly around my apartment. And sometimes wandering outside on my sidewalk for a few minutes before the bits of frozen water flying in my face got the better of me. Maybe I’ll find a scarf and try again.
