Hey! I grew up in Athens, Georgia just south of Springer Mountain. I love to volunteer at community gardens and food banks, clean up rivers and climbing spots and run like... a lot. Like so much. I run so much. My very favorite spot to get lost in the world is Black Forest, Germany (anywhere in Europe would work if I'm being honest, my heart is stuck there) but if I had to pick stateside, my heart will always melt for Lake Hartwell, GA.
