Welcome to Free Range Human! I’m Natalie, and I live in Oklahoma with my husband, John, and our two adorable fur-babies, Max and Gus. I’m 31 years old and passionate about backpacking, running, and just about all things fitness-related. After many moons of reading blogs, I decided to start Free Range Human in 2012 to share my perspective and be a part of this wonderful community.
I’ve always been an active individual, but it wasn’t until my late twenties that I really found my true passion. In the spring of 2010, I was introduced to the world of hiking and, specifically, backpacking, and my whole life changed. Since then, our love of the outdoors has taken John and I on adventures to Montana, Arkansas, Utah, and all over the state of Colorado. P.S. You’ll discover my love for Colorado very quickly!
John and I plan just about every vacation around a backpacking adventure, and we have a long term goal of hiking the Continental Divide Trail that stretches from Mexico to Canada.
Recently, I’ve also discovered a love for running, and, to date, I’ve four half marathons and numerous 5Ks. In 2015, my Dad and I are on a mission to complete 12 Races in 12 States in 12 Months.
Free Range Human is a place where I share my love for all of these things, and my hope is that this will be a place that I can inspire others to find their passions!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope see you around here regularly!
