Hey there! Welcome to my little corner of the internet. My name is Gabi, and the writing you’ll see on this blog is all about uncovering the secrets and the stories around what it means to partake in a healthy lifestyle. There are no rules when it comes to, “being healthy”, and I think a lot of people forget that…including me.
While ultra-trail running is my true love, it’s impossible for me to do that without a healthy dose of outdoor adventure, time in the gym, and many slices of burnt toast. The point is, nothing in life requires you to be black and white, so my writing won’t be either. There are times when you’ll read interviews with female athletes, my forays in the kitchen, or simply a random assortment of thoughts organized (neatly) on a single web page. I focus on women’s issues and topics because, well, I’m a chick and I think the femme perspective is too often under represented.
Here you’ll read many things. There are a host of topics I adore talking and writing about as I studied English at UC Berkeley. The written word will never die (she mutters to herself as she types these words)! A few of my favorite topics include why dark roast coffee is superior to light, what books you should pick up and read immediately, and why eating meat won’t destroy the planet but why knowing where it’s coming from will do a lot in terms of protecting it.
I’ll try my hand at nearly anything with an aim to explore, share, and educate others. At the heart of it, I want to understand what it truly means to life a healthy lifestyle, and why that definition has gotten so skewed in society today. *Spoiler alert; that looks different on everyone!*
