I was unprepared for almost everything about our trip. When my boyfriend, Greg, and I landed at the San Jose airport in Mexico, I was shocked by the heat. Despite the motivation for our February trip largely being a break from Montana’s winter, stepping into 90 degree heat felt like stepping on to the sun. …

I was a curious kid. I climbed trees. I explored the creeks near my home. I rollerbladed on trails paralleling the Pacific Ocean. As a kid, the world was this big, beautiful place to explore, and I dove into all of its wonder without question. Then something happened as adolescence kicked in. Society started to …

I was about to leave for Port-au-Prince to sail on a relief yacht through Haiti, Jamaica, Cuba, and the Cayman Islands. I was popping anti-anxiety meds, losing sleep, my fingers itching to call it all off. To retreat into safety. I had never …

It was my brother Ethan’s idea. He was getting married in Jinan, China, and Taishan, or Mt. Tai in English, was a quick bullet train ride away. “We’ll climb it a few days before the wedding,” he said. “We’ll be too hung-over after.” He meant he’d be too hung-over after, referring to the Chinese tradition …

A student of mine died this year and then I traveled to this place called Tana Toraja to see a pig get set on fire and after that I got a voicemail from my mother about looking death in the face. But, I’m getting ahead of myself. We’ll start with the pig. My husband and …

This past Monday was the pinnacle of marathon running — the 120th Boston Marathon. Over 26,000 runners from all around the world converged on the great city of Boston to run this historic race, and I was lucky enough to be one of them.
