Welcome to Summit Sunday! This initiative started in 2012 when two friends decided to hike a mountain in Utah on a Sunday afternoon before one of the friends had to leave to live at sea level on an island away from the mountains he loved so dearly. This blog is dedicated to the notion that you can "climb mountains" wherever you are.
Here is to September, my most favorite-est of months.
A month so great that all the males in my immediate family were born in it.
A month so grand that you begin to feel that fall is really here, like really "see it in your breath and fingers" here, but not so bland that the souls of the trees and people whither and fall in soggy wet bunches upon the ground.
Here's to intervals, and spandex, and the Church of Breath and Footsteps. And here's to the friends with whom you share a bowl of chili with over a pine-wood table, and then, the Bananagrams you play past dark.
Here's to a first-snowfall hike in sorrels and the feeling of the crunch of packed powder beneath your feet.
Here's to you, #summitsunday.
Here's my jam for the coolness of the afternoon. https://www.thisismyjam.com/gustavojohnson1/_6srp26e
Also, CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE IRONMAN LAKE TAHOE PEEPS WHO RACED AND SUPPORTED RACERS TODAY! It was awesome seeing you giving it out there.
