LocoMödiv Gear Untrakt Backpack Review

LocoMödiv Gear Untrakt Backpack Review
I was provided the opportunity to receive this product without charge in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.    

I had been thinking about getting a new backpack, especially one that would be able to carry my laptop around in. LocoMödiv Gear is different from other bags due to their straps. The straps make the pack customizable which is really neat! I was able to choose any bag from their site and my needing a backpack with a padded computer sleeve made the choice easier. I ended up with the Neo32 Pack.

Hiking Angel's Landing 4/29/18

Hiking Angel's Landing - Zion National Park 4/29/18 Trip Report
The day after running the Zion Half Marathon we ventured to hike Angel's Landing in Zion National Park. I had heard about the hike before, but did not realize how mentally challenging it would be. I'm not usually afraid of heights but with the amount of people, wind, and steepness, I almost backed out of doing it at one point but realized it was my chance to do it at that moment. I had to give it a shot because who knew when I'd be back. I'm so glad I did because it was an unforgettable experience.

Zion Half Marathon Race Recap 4/28/18

Zion Half Marathon Race Recap 4/28/18
A couple weeks ago, I ran the Zion Half Marathon put on by Vacation Races and it was so much fun! What made it so fun was the company and of course the beautiful scenery. Me and my friend Erin were reunited with our good friend Lenora that we had not seen since last summer so it was great that we were all able to catch up and do this race together.
