Upon leaving the military, she knew she did not want a standard job and "normal" life. So, what did she do? She flew to New Zealand to bicycle the country. This started a series of adventures that led her to competing in the world half Ironman, running (and winning second female) the Marathon De Sables, and many other adventures. And she is not slowing down. She is currently training for The Ultra Trail Du Mont Blanc – a 171 km race around Mont Blanc. She offers coaching services as well through her company, Reach For More Coaching. She shares much about what it takes to build an adventure-focused lifestyle.

What is obstacle racing? Check this out. Racing that is not just about a run or a bike or any other single skill. This is about full-body strength with the challenges of a ninja warrior and the stamina of a marathoner. This is not just going, but going under and over and through…. Margaret Schlachter does a great job of unpacking this sport AND she provides a great example of how one can escape the traditional 8 to 5 to live an adventure sport focused life. It is called Spartan Racing, Tough Mudder Racing, and more. But in the end, it is a full body challenge for those who are not afraid to get dirty. Pretty tough stuff!

Jon Hogins learned the adventurous side of fly fishing from his dad as he grew up in California. They did amazing trips into the mountains and national parks. But Jon found himself living in the warm water lands of Texas. That did not slow him down. He is passionate about warm water fly fishing for bass, crappie, blue gills, you name it. Fly fishing is the perfect complement for all sorts of outdoors adventures like backpacking, horse packing, snow shoeing, back country skiing and even mountain biking. Why not take a rod along! And you don’t have to be in the land of icy snow melt to enjoy it. Warm water fly fishing. What a blast! We also spend a few minutes on Taiga Coolers—serious coolers for serious adventurers.
