About Katie K

I am a part time adventurer who doesn’t like to get too too cold. I love to be up early and try not to miss many sunrises in the summer.

The last week in Vermont has touched down in the negative numbers almost every day and in Vermont it is very important to get outside in winter. If you don’t get outside often you can really become eerily attached to the heat, […]

Firsts and Fitness

Firsts are an exciting topic of conversation, especially for the individual sharing the first. There is usually a sense of nostalgia, sometimes a tinge of regret, and it is often palpable as the person relives the moment as she explains it. I have a favorite first. It was my first foray into the world of […]
