Hello! I’m Rachel – the girl behind the blog. I’m a twenty something gal living and playing in Bozeman, MT. I moved here in November 2011, after having spent my entire life in the suburbs of Philadelphia and four wonderful years in the Electric City while attending the University of Scranton.
By day, I’m a total HR nerd. I work for Yellowstone General Stores and I have the pleasure of telling people how awesome it is to live and work in Yellowstone National Park sooooooo I basically have the coolest job in the world.
I never considered myself to be very athletic growing up, although I always enjoyed swimming. In 2009, I completed my first 5k and discovered my love of fitness. Eventually I started competing in triathlons and in October 2012 I acquired my Schwinn Indoor Cycling Instructor Certification. I am currently a spin instructor at Fuel Fitness. If you live in Bozeman you should check out one of my classes! Monday at 12:10pm and Tuesday/Thursday at 6am.
I love embracing all of the awesome outdoor activities that Bozeman has to offer and my favorites include: road and mountain biking, rock climbing, xc skiing, ice climbing, camping, fishing, kayaking, snowboarding, hiking, and whitewater rafting. I also dabble in CrossFit at CrossFit Bozeman.
I hope you enjoy keeping up with my adventures here at rachelEsimms! If you have any questions, feel free to email me at rachelEsimms@gmail.com.
