I Thought My Love for Climbing Died with My Husband. I Was Wrong.

What do you do with someone’s climbing shoes when they die? I hadn’t thought about it. After all, my husband, Cam, was 34 and still should have had many years of climbing ahead of him. It was December 2019, the season of gift-giving, as I sat in our apartment shedding his belongings. Some things felt fitting to donate (a ski jacket) or use (a laptop), but his climbing shoes were a problem. We’d purchased them together in 2017 at The Arch climbing gym in London—a pair of his and hers Scarpas. We downsized to increase precision on footholds, and our feet would come out of them sore and imprinte ..read more

How to Keep Tick Bites from Ruining Your Summer

At home in Brooklyn, New York, my wife and I have discovered ticks on our dog, a pit-boxer mix who lacks the wherewithal to notify us of such an intruder. A few weeks ago, I found a tick—luckily, before it bit—on my arm while visiting Oakland, California. Outside editors have been coming across the disgusting creatures in northern New Mexico, northern Virginia, and coastal Massachusetts. A decade ago, my little sister contracted Lyme disease in high school, so I have always been paranoid about tick bites. And with growing tick populations, ever more tick-related diseases, and a flurry of head ..read more

New Study Shows Hot Springs Might Actually Have Healing Properties

At the southern terminus of the Cotswold Way, a 102-mile trail through the English countryside, there’s a beautiful sight for sore legs: the Roman Baths. Hiking to hot springs is a time-honored tradition in the U.S. and beyond, and not just because soaking feels good after a long walk. Many hot springs enthusiasts also claim that the waters themselves have healing properties. The Romans were no different: They believed Bath’s springs, which are today cordoned off as a museum exhibit, could heal skin infections and other afflictions. And now, recent science shows that they might have actually ..read more

There’s no place like New York City, especially if you’re a runner. Whether you’ve raced multiple marathons or you prefer a mellower pace, you’ll always have a new route to explore, a run club to meet up with, or an event to sign up for. “Any kind of running experience you want to have, you can have here,” says Dave Hashim, a New York City–based photographer who recently completed the Perimeter Project, where he ran around the borders of all five boroughs. For Caitlin Papageorge, president of North Brooklyn Runners, part of the city’s love affair with running stems from the way its citizens n ..read more

What’s the Right Way to Grieve My Brother? I Try Surfing.
Outside Magazine » Wellness

1M ago
In his seminal surf memoir Barbarian Days, William Finnegan calls Will Rogers State Beach “not a proper surf spot.” Chris and I assess its conditions from the lip of the parking lot, blissfully oblivious to what, exactly, makes a surf spot “proper” or “improper.” It’s an overcast Monday morning, the wind is low, a typical five degrees cooler than my side of L.A. We are flanked by mountains to the north and the Santa Monica Pier, cloaked in fog, to the south. Modest, crumbly waves peel off the break. Monday mornings mean busy freeways and empty lineups. A smattering of surfers bob just beyond ..read more

As an Olympic Athlete, Freezing My Eggs Was a Gift to Myself

If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide or self-harm, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline toll-free from anywhere in the United States at 1-800-273-8255, or text HOME to the Crisis Text Line at 741741. As an Olympic hopeful, I was trained to seek out no insurance for my career. I committed to trying hard at all costs, believing in the impossible, and never giving up. This mindset took me all the way to the Olympics, where I ran a Greek national record and personal best in the 10,000 meters in 2016. It was and still is a dream come true. I love my Olympic family. I d ..read more

How a Skin Cancer Diagnosis Changed My Relationship with the Outdoors

The day my life changed, I sat on crinkly paper in a blue hospital gown. A surgeon had cut wide incisions to remove skin cancer—melanoma—in four places on my back and neck. I had 34 stitches taken out, and the scars were the length of a hand, but there was good news. I was healing. As far as the surgeon knew, the cancer hadn’t spread, and I thought the hard part was over. Then, the surgeon delivered a blow. A blood test showed I had a genetic mutation. The CDKN2A gene in all of us regulates cell division. Mine is faulty, which makes the risk of cancer returning high. While genetics will proba ..read more

Many of us know the feeling of resolving to do things differently in our everyday life. Photographer Mary Jo Hoffman understands what it is to make a daily ritual out of that resolve. On January 1, 2012, she began a “one-year creative effort” in which she committed to capture a photo of a found object in nature and post it to her blog each day. Since then, it’s turned into a more than decade-long relationship with the world around her. By making creativity her accountability partner, Hoffman has continued to explore the alchemy that happens when you regularly create space for stillness and aw ..read more
