I saw Kelsey on Instagram from one of the (way too many) profiles I follow. I’d like to say I remember what account it was that talked about her, but it’s Friday night as I’m writing this post, I’m currently already into my glass of wine, and I’m wearing a tank top that reads “No mas today”–so I think you’ll forgive me for this one.
I started Chasing Challenges after reflecting on some of my own challenges I was pursing. I also really love all the stories I see every day in my feed, in articles on the internet, and even in person. I wanted to be more involved in those stories. It’s been a learning process, and although my first interview was in May, this one jumped over a few months.
Kel decided she was going to summit fourteen 14ft-ers all by the end of this summer, having never done anything like this before nor even hiked a 14ft-er. Some of these she even braved by herself (something I’m not ashamed to admit I haven’t accomplished psyching myself up to yet). I really loved how she made the decision of what she wanted to do despite not having the experience or knowing how it would go; she still went after her goals anyhow.
I immediately sent her an PM asking if I could feature her here. Luckily for me, she said yes! Read on to hear about her epic summer journey. Read More
