My long had romance with adrenaline, has been altered for an affair with my new love, dopamine.

-On making a transition in loves...  from being obsessed with running to being obsessed with climbing.


“True, some high-tech gear will make your run more fun, but really, all you need is a good pair of shoes, and a supportive sports bra. It couldn't be simpler.  You were born knowing how to run, may not have perfect form yet, but you already know how to place one foot in front of the other and settle into a comfortable pace.  No new skills to master, no equipment to buy—just get out there and run.” -Women's Health Magazine

“Climbing is an exceptionally thrilling experience.  There is nothing more frightening and exciting than holding onto the side of a cliff and ascending to the top. On the journey, you usually have nothing more than your own strength, a tether line, and possibly a friend to keep you from falling to the ground. Obviously, a lot of people can't get over that fear, but it's such a great experience if transcend your reservations and just start climbing. Thrilling isn't a strong enough word to describe what climbing is.” -Yahoo Sports on Climbing
