I genuinely didn't think I could do the last 5 days of hiking over 34 miles, let alone actually enjoy it, but I couldn't have been more mistaken. I do zero to minimal exercise, and I was beyond pleasantly surprised at what my body (and mind) were able to achieve this last few days at @theranchmalibu Very very cool experience. I feel very very lucky and excited to be someone who actually enjoys doing outdoor activities now. Thank you to the incredibly inspiring staff as well. You were delightful Also my @brittlrobertson how I love you so. I laughed so hard with you this weekend. One for the grandkids me thinks. I'm pretty sure everyone else on the retreat was genuinely surprised after 5 days of being with one another every waking moment, including about 14 hours of walking and talking, we still had things to cackle about. #theranch4day #rattlesnakedrama
