in january of 2015 i decided to launch a blog. i did so with a brief post, and some photos of the destination that inspired me to finally go live – Lake Tahoe. in the past year my blog has molded into a healthy living blog that encourages others to be active, to be outside, and to be themselves. in celebrating the one year anniversary of thefirst2hours, i thought i would share some of my favorite posts from 2015.
every year i spend time in Colorado for work. often times my work trips are spent in cities, but on this particular occasion, i knew i had meetings in Estes Park, Colorado. the thought had me squirming with enthusiasm. it was a work trip, and a busy one at that, but when life gives you lemons, you wake up at 4am, drive 45 minutes to meet Mr J and his pup at the trailhead, and squeeze in a 10 mile hike before the work day begins.
this morning, the alarm startled me awake at 5:30am. i proceeded to have this conversation with myself: what time is it? is that my alarm? is that joe’s alarm? where am i? am i at home?
