Slog. Rhymes with blog. Sophie-log. Slog is a funny word, and also representative of being in my twenties struggling to follow a dream. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about "enjoying the journey." I think a slog can be pleasant, certainly rewarding, and rarely wasted. A good slog generally involves great company, excellent snacks, and an overwhelming sense of 'Wow! I'm so sweaty! But look where we are! This is so damn beautiful!'
Whether it's a big ski tour, a long hilly run, a flat stretch of river against a headwind... it keeps one honest. I like honest.
So, welcome to my slog!
