Today I turned to the mountains to hold me as I felt the deep sorrow and disappointment of perceived failure. Facing one of my worst fears —failing—isn’t easy. I took care of myself by packing my day with mountains: skiing in the morning, trail running in the afternoon, and scrambling the 2nd flatiron before sunset! Now, I’m heading off for a night of partner dancing in a community I love. I am lucky to have the support of mountains, movement, and friends as my heart feels.
