Winter won’t let go, but that’s OK. No reason not to get out there and get after it. With that in mind, here are a few stories to get you in the mood for tackling the next big challenge. Let’s do the Weekly Stoke!

Joby Ogwyn has an audacious plan. Part of it involves climbing Mount Everest. The other part: jumping off the summit and flying to base camp in a wingsuit.

A new trend that marries travel and fitness is emerging in cities across the globe: Sight running.

One of two from the Adventure Journal today: A writer looks at the impact reality television is having in Alaska.

Thinking about running your first trail half marathon? Be warned, it ain’t anything like a road race. Here are some tips on how to prepare.

This writer looks at the life of a friend who hasn’t lost perspective on the fact that life should be enjoyed.

And finally, there’s this second offer from AJ: An essay on living simply, being interesting, and doing it in style.

    • Postural therapy can help a lot of the issues you are facing. Look to see if you have any postural therapists who use the Egoscue Method. A lot of spinal imbalances will affect your hips, shoulders, knees, ankles, etc., all the way down to your extremities. Might be worth a look. It’s helped me, especially as I’ve cranked up the miles running and started doing more “big lift” weight exercises.
