jenhudak Somehow managed to find #snow up high yesterday, but the conditions in the #Wasatch are scary. If you're not doing so already, we truly need to think about ways that we can #protectourwinters! Hoping that conditions like this will not be a future trend, but I'm beginning to fear they might be. Regardless, some days aren't meant to be the most all-time conditions, but to offer a reminder that any day in the #mountains is a good and special day. | @rockstarenergy @ua_action @volklskis @gopro | #simplyvolkl #gowhereyoudontbelong #rockstarenergy #vwerks #katana 2w

jenhudak Such a great first day with @vidamtbseries! This is Dawn, one of the instructors, spotting Heather through a roll on Jordan Trail yesterday. It's inspiring to watch people to commit and achieve something they didn't know was possible at the start of the day! P.S.- absolutely loving my new @yeticycles #sb5c!! 3w

jenhudak Almost got stuck in some mud around midnight thirty last night, but managed to turn around, which landed us here! I've never seen snow on those mountains over yonder; it's a bit nippy out, but the teardrop is a nice, warm hideaway. First night was a success! On to more adventures with @moore1488 and my new @yeticycles #sb5c! 3w

jenhudak I hear it's starting to snow in #Utah! Looking forward to doing some more of this soon. It soothes the soul. Thanks to all for the support over the last few days.

jenhudak Sometimes life brings you to unexpected places. Sometimes in the form of grand adventures and sometimes to less glamorous locations.

I have been struggling with social media lately as I feel it paints an unhealthy, unrealistic view of people's "perfect" lives. The ideal 1 second of our 86,400 second-long days. I share photos of my biking and my skiing and touch lightly on the struggles, hard work and perseverance that it took for me to accomplish my dreams as I aim to inspire. Yet my real challenges and struggles no one sees. We're not supposed to have them, let alone "share" them.

But here's what's real. I'm back in Connecticut with my parents, helping my dad who has been in the hospital for the last 6 weeks as he continues his 4+ year-long battle with leukemia and subsequent ailments. He hasn't quit on life yet; in fact he's clinging onto what is left of it. He's kicking and clawing and crawling his damn way out of here so that he can hold his month old granddaughter for the first time. It isn't pretty or glamorous; it's raw, it's real and it's ugly. But sometimes it's all we've got left. We are resilient beings.

I don't write this for your sympathy (though it is always appreciated) but to remind you to allow people's beautiful lives and captured moments to inspire you to strive and hope for more. But don't forget that behind that image is probably also a lot of struggle, heartache, humility, insecurity and fear. We are human. #behuman

  •   hanksjen Being 'real' is very different from complaining or asking for sympathy. I find people who overcome adversity to achieve their dreams so inspiring. Thanks for being real and sharing @jenhudak !!! Healthy healing vibes being sent to you and your family. 1mon

  •   bird_dog_ted "Be kind, every person fights a hard battle" I'm trying to remind myself of that every day. Nothing is perfect everything simply just is, if our lives were meant to be perfect we would not be on Earth... Hope your dad gets to hold his grandchild. 5d

jenhudak Meanwhile, in Utah... Virtually record highs create an environment in which one can ski and bike in the same day without bundling up and wearing funny neoprene handlebar covers. #whereswinter? @volklskis @yeticycles #simplyvolkl #sb95c #outdoorwomen 2mon
