✅ Being the one left behind - and when you finally do catch up, the rest of your group takes off while you're gasping for air.

✅ Being super embarrassed by how out of shape you are.

✅ Thinking "But this was supposed to be an easy hike".

✅ Questioning the sanity of people who actually think this is fun

✅ Coming up with creative excuses to so you can quit without feeling like a failure.

✅ Thinking "I'll never be a real hiker anyway, so what's the point?"

✅Wondering how long it will take someone to find you after you get lost in the woods .

✅Thinking "What was that? At the sound of every branch cracking.

I get it. Because that was me when I first started hiking, and then me again after I got COVID last year.

Hi, I'm Laurel. I was so slow that “hikers” smoking a cigarette would easily overtake me while smugly comparing their jeans and cotton t-shirt to my full hiking gear. The less polite ones would actually laugh loud enough that I could hear it.


And then on one hike when one too many smokers had laughed at me, it was too much. I broke down sobbing just off the trail. I knew I didn’t have it in me to reach the challenging peak that I could have easily done the year before, but I was so embarrassed. I didn’t want to wreck the day for my boyfriend, but I had no choice but to turn around, like a puppy with its tail between its legs.

As I sulked on the train ride back home looking at all the mountains that would be too hard for me to hike, I realized

Hiking was making me miserable! ☹️

Hiking had been my way to revitalize to relieve stress, to get creative ideas for over 20 years and in multiple countries. Now it was just making me feel pathetic.

I decided that I could either a) stop hiking - a rather shocking idea considering it’s been my favourite thing to do for years and that I own a hiking company or b) find a way to make it enjoyable again.

Spoiler Alert: I choose the latter.

I dug out my fail-proof 5-point method for choosing hikes that I’d developed years ago when I first started hiking. It had served me then and has served countless others who I've shared it with over the years, and it served me again - immediately.

On my next hike, I enjoyed hiking again for the first hike in months. I still cried, but this time, it was tears of joy as I reached the summit (admittedly smaller than what I’d normally do).
Instead of feeling exhausted, I felt energized. Instead of feeling like my lungs were going to burst out of my chest at any moment, I felt my heart pounding but could still hold a conversation.

And it’s available to you today.
