This week on the podcast we have a special guest to mark the 10th episode of the show, Vanessa Runs. Vanessa and I have been friends for years and in 2012 she was one of the people who helped me to gather the courage to quit my day job and jump into Dirt in Your Skirt and Obstacle Racing full time, so it was special to have her on the podcast, to say the least!

Vanessa is a modern day nomad living in a small RV with her husband and pets. In 2012, she and her now husband sold all their belongings, got rid of the house, car, and everything else to move into an RV. Here they are 4 years later still on the road. They have traveled North America exploring the world. In the process, Vanessa has written two books, The Summit Seeker and Daughters of Distance. She is currently working on her third book as they spend the summer in Leadville, Colorado.

    • I felt like an addict on the trails this morning when we encountered tons of thimble berries. I could not stop eating them!
::
They look kinda like raspberries at first glance. For years we saw them on the trails and recently Forest learned what they were and that in fact they are edible.
::
It’s fun to combine trail running, foraging, some off trail exploring, and a little sun time all in one adventure with the family.

    • It doesn’t get much better then from forest gathering to dessert in a matter of hours.
::
I spend a lot of time thinking about exercise vs life and how to incorporate the two into one stacked activity.
::
This weekend was the perfect real world example - during our run/hike we stopped and took an hour to gather huckleberries. The movement of Berry picking worked a number of muscles and gave us food for dessert.
::
When life and workouts mesh into one.
