Life is about taking risks....
Today as I was out for my 3 hour run, I got this crazy idea! I thought how cool it would be to stand on the top of Mission Peak naked, well I would keep my Montrails on.
I knew there was no one on the trail, there were only two cars in the parking lot.
I got to the top and the wind was blowing I'm sure it was 25 miles an hour, and it was cold 45 degrees.
I stripped down and took a picture.
Funny, how as soon as I took my clothes off I felt suddenly warmer.
It was fun being naked alone up there.
I beleive life is all about taking risks as long as you aren't hurting anyone, why not?
My life is all about taking risks. I have been suppressed by guys that I have dated all my life.
Whenever I tried to be independent I'd get pushed down.
I was never given the opportunity to take risk.
I spent the majority of my life being afraid to try new things.
I was afraid to be alone, I hated the dark was scared to run alone at night. And God forbid I could handle spending the night in the wilderness alone.
I've been even told by guys not to get anymore tattoos..
It's my body and my life, I can do what I want. I'm not hurting anyone.
I was afraid of trying new things and being alone until my Mom died. After she died I felt like she gave me a new life to live. Dealing with her death changed me. She gave me life and I needed to be strong and do all things that I desired in life.
I must thank my x-husband Ammon for believing in me and in a strange way he forced me to be badass. He was the one who said I could go out on the JMT alone and be fine. He was right I was fine. Even though we were a bad match he taught me so much.
I will continue taking risk traveling the trails alone for 511 miles spend the night on the ground, and not being afarid. Running the trail at night alone, in the dark. I am no longer afraid , I am no longer that scarred little girl from a few years ago, I am a strong confident woman and I will take risks.
Sorry for the rant.
Have a great day!
