I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of hiking long distances. Stories of people who have trekked the Pan-American Highway or the Appalachian Trail pique my interest and make me wonder what it would take to do that. A trip to Ireland and Scotland last fall made me realize that a day full of walking, even in a city, takes some planning.
I had my mind set on taking a self-defense class the past year. When my editor suggested a column about Krav Maga, I jumped at the idea. I love it! It gives me the cardio workout I like and need. I’m gaining confidence by learning skills that could one day help me, and it gives me a chance to use some of the strength I gained through CrossFit in a different way. Plus, I feel like a badass!
