I’ve recently taken a strong liking towards indoor rock climbing, which provides relief from the brutal Arizona heat. Rock climbing is a great activity that allows you to continuously push yourself and strive for improvement without getting dull, especially since the gyms change the paths frequently. When I’m not rock climbing, which sadly is most days, I also enjoy playing recreational sports like kickball, ultimate Frisbee, and softball with friends or taking my dog out to the dog park…or, honestly, furiously binge watching a new show on Netflix.
