Mountains are my own form of therapy. Sometimes I wish I could just live on a mountain and be on top of the world. I would spend every day marveling at its beauty. This makes me wonder how I spent 3 and a-half years in Miami, Florida with nothing but swamps and beaches. Don’t get me wrong, Miami is beautiful, but I am so glad to be fortunate enough to get away every once in a while.

Every 4th of July in Seward, AK, there is a race up Mount Marathon. My dad and I hiked up this mountain on the 3rd, and came to the conclusion that there is no way people actually RUN up it. But alas, the next day hundreds of people ran up and down the mountain in no time at all. People are amazing.
