How we do one thing is how we do everything: Living in Squamish BC.
With summer approaching we can see the mountains and remember why we live in the Sea to Sky. It is no secret that I want to spend half my time on the island in Tofino, living a short bike ride away from the surf, and hearing the waves while I fall asleep. I will have a place near the beach and a car at the Tofino airport so I can fly over. Surfing is something you dedicate yourself to and it is in my near future. How we do one thing is how we do everything, if it is a priority we will make time for it.
Living in Squamish BC, we cross train, we ride up those steep hills, we look to others who are better than us, & we try to do every activity possible. Have we developed a Squamish culture that we never feel good enough because the person next to us can ride up faster on a bike or smash out a drop off a cliff on a snowboard.
What brought me to the Sea to Sky? I moved to Squamish 7 years ago after the end of a romantic relationship. I thought about what kind of life I wanted and what made me happy: mountain biking, kiteboarding, paddle boarding, climbing, & a smaller town vibe. I packed up my car and moved North.
I grew up in Kitsilano and shopping was my sport of choice. Stiletto heels, manicured nails, how many shopping bags you could carry, and salon done hair was who crossed the finish line first. So, I was about to experience a lifestyle shock when I was forced to switch towns and moved onto a friend’s boat with no power, running water, or heat. I woke up most mornings to either the boat flooding or stepping on geese shit stepping onto the dock.

6AM yoga, a home evaluation, & breakfast of champions: cake and caffeine. Expecting a quick lap biking with a friend I throw on some bike clothes. After a recent X-ray positively clearing me from breaking my back, I am attempting to learn to take ego out of my life. Likely impossible. [Read more…]
