If you're not questioning why you like to wake up at an ungodly hour to subject yourself to intense physical torture at high altitudes, then you aren't doing it right.
Most women feel this huge pressure to look good at all times regardless of what’s going on. This usually means we sacrifice comfort in the name of fashion. Two words: Screw that. What's the point of suffering in the name of “looking good.” You can look great wearing something that doesn’t require pain. Tell someone who's spent 11 straight days hiking that their shoes don't make their legs look sexy and they are likely to tell you to "piss off."
My eyes flash open. I roll over and check the clock. 15 minutest before my alarm goes off. My heart starts to race. Dread sets in. The thought of putting my foot down off the side of the bed to start another day at the office floods my soul with anxiety. It doesn't matter how hard I wish, I simply cannot stop the passage of time. The inevitable will arrive. The second I put that foot down I vow to myself that today will be different. Today I would leave my career in pursuit of my passions.
There is something about climbing rocks that keeps bringing me back. The challenge of facing fears never comes easily. Climbing teaches us to keep pushing back on that fear. The harder you push the more you realize what you are truly capable of.

There's a special breed who live for dawn. While you're asleep we tip-toe out of bed. We yearn for the unspeakable hour. A 2am wakeup call means nothing. There's anticipation in the air when we lace up our boots by headlamp; our foggy breath obscuring our vision. A morning cup of joe high in the mountains sounds like the perfect coffee date. Nothing beats skiing a fresh line of powder shortly after sunrise. The pyramid shadow of the mountain points us to the next horizon. We live by the sun. We are dawn patrol.
