Under the Covers: Daring Greatly

Welcome to Under the Covers, an on-going series of book reviews to enrich the way we think, move, eat and connect.

Daring Greatly Book Cover

Wise Owl 5 RatingIn my Under the Covers book series, I will rate each book based on its “Life Wisdom” value (from 1 to 5 wise owls). I will review books that inspire, motivate and teach life lessons. Some of our greatest wisdom comes from those whose journeys may be quite different from our own.

Grand Canyon “rim2rim2rim” Adventure: Part III

If you would like to know what it's really like to explore the Grand Canyon on foot, then this musical slideshow is for you.

 

Leading a FIT life does not require a treadmill, aerobics class or even a dumbbell. Above all, it requires 2 things. Desire and enthusiasm.

Over time everything gets stale if its repetitive. You don’t have to travel to a canyon or purchase expensive equipment.

Nature is free. Sometimes all we need is new scenery. Or a new buddy to talk to on a walk.

To learn more about embarking on your own canyon adventure, view the entire 3 part series here for tips to make it a grand experience!

Grand Canyon “rim2rim2rim” Adventure: Part I

A 3 part series of our 2 day trek through the Grand Canyon begins here.

Grand Canyon Part I

There is a big difference in mindset when you must reach a destination versus when you want or should reach it.

When there is no way out, our brains and bodies have a way of cooperating.

A year in advance, my husband and I planned this adventure. To run rim to rim to rim of the canyon in 2 consecutive days. I hadn’t run much on trails but that didn’t matter. I was itching to explore gorgeous terrain on foot. My husband agreed. Read more
