Since I’ve lived my entire life in California, the outdoors have always been a big part of my life. In my childhood I spent hours playing outside and as I grew older I turned to other outdoor activities like running, camping, and trips to the lake. As an adult some of my favorite trips involve the great outdoors and although other places are beautiful, there’s no place that has my heart as much as my own backyard. Today I’ve partnered with Athleta to share some of my favorite places to hike in California as well as a look at their new sustainable line.

I live less than an hour south of San Francisco, but in all honesty I don’t get to spend a lot of free time there. I’m always going up for work events and meetings, but it’s rare that I get to go up for a day of fun. When I do, it’s usually in the Summer and it’s spent on the quiet side of San Francisco, the beach side! Today I’ve partnered with & Other Stories. to share a little bit of my adventure there with my friend Elisabeth and a few of my favorites in that area.
