Durham (near[masked] & I-40)
Running, trail running, hiking, camping, horseback riding, biking, swimming, all water sports (kayaking, canoeing, boating, ww-rafting), snowshoeing scavenger hunts, bon fires, picnics, tailgating and attending sporting events. Some rock climbing and some skiing.
Everywhere! I have been all over Michigan, New England, Maryland and Colorado. Some NC travel & exploration, though it was a few years ago. I love trails, forests, parks, waterways, mountains, beaches, gardens, etc. I am really looking forward to more exploring of North Carolina.
I have been hiking/trail running forever. I have been on hikes in all seasons, conditions and terrains. I have hiked trails, rocks, traverse's, etc. I move pretty quick. 2 years ago we hiked the Presidential Traverse in NH - very rocky and unstable, but awesome! I consider myself a pretty decent hiker and wouldn't be afraid of an advanced day hike challenge.
My name is Jill. I am an exercise physiologist living in Durham and working at Duke. I have been active my whole life and prefer to be outside whenever possible. I am looking to get to know this beautiful state a little bit more- one hike at a time!
So far, I love it. Maybe a few too many e-mails, but I'll manage.
