A few months ago, I chatted with a friend about my bucket list. It came up in conversation that I wanted to hike Machu Picchu in Peru to go find myself (or something of that variation). I’ve done a few hikes before but nothing as intense as this. I said, “why the hell not?” Bought the ticket and decided to go. I didn’t put much thought into how the trip would go or what I wanted it to be like. I started the hike and just went with the flow. Four days and twenty-six miles later, I arrived at the site (which was pretty cool). I met some amazing friends and had some pretty cool experiences in this short time. The part that struck me most was that I actually did it and while I was hiking, nothing else in the world mattered. All I could do was focus on what was happening that very moment. If you’re feeling stuck in your head or just in your routine: GO CLIMB A FU$KING MOUNTAIN… you’ll thank yourself later.

See you on the mat. Much love and good vibes.
