I’ve walked over a 150 miles so far this summer and I have so many more to walk before it ends. I have beautiful photos that prove what I’ve done and where I’ve been. I’ve been to places I’ve dreamed of going to. Places I made excuses about not experiencing for real and imagined reasons (real: being broke - imagined: fear of not being able to physically do something I want to do). What you don’t see in these photos is the person who sometimes feels stuck to the couch with depression and anxiety, binging reality TV. The person who can’t clean her bedroom. The person who’s started having groceries delivered because the grocery store has begun to feel the same as being at the airport. I’m not ashamed of my mental health struggles, but I know we are taught to be, so I just wanted to share a little realness with you in case you need it. I often wonder if I’d hike as much as I do if it didn’t have such a positive effect on my mental wellbeing. I am so many things all of the time: the loud and proud fat, queer hiker and the person on the couch, 6 episodes deep. And all of me is worthy. #WhyIHike

Day 139 | August 15th 2019 | 7:58 A.M. | Mile 2653.1 AND JUST LIKE THAT....I COMPLETED THE PCT! It's crazy to think that only four and a half months ago I stood at that southern terminus 2,653 miles back. My pack was 40 lbs, I had little backpacking experience, I was carrying mascara (I know, ridiculous), and I had absolutely no idea what I was getting myself into. 
Fast forward to today....my pack weighs 23 lbs, I've slept outside for months, my clothes are filthy, and I smell like dog, but my heart is full, and I've completed the journey of a lifetime. A huge thank you to all of those who were rooting for me and were a part of the journey, you guys are amazing and kept me trekking!💕🥾
