It’s no secret that I love being outside, so hiking is a perfect form of exercise for me.  There are so many different types of trails to explore – many right in my own local area! I’ve done little exploratory hikes that take me in and out of ravines, hiked up a fire road near my house that’s great for running, and one of my favourites is a mountain hike in Malibu. There’s a waterfall that’s absolutely exquisite, especially after it rains.

Even here in California, it’s essential to layer for an outdoor workout, especially at this time of year. If I’m headed out for a hike, I’ll pull on some leggings and a seamless bra, topping it off with an Aventura tank.  A puffy vest completes the look, unless it’s especially chilly, in which case I’ll add a parka.
