the outside life

Excellent footage, excellent topic.

In my experience, there a lot of mountain athletes who share these traits. There is the dopamine / endorphin chemistry that occurs when pursuing outdoor activity. The thrill of climbing mountains, moving fast through complex terrain, up or down.

Everyone has ups and downs in life, I’ve personally never experienced what he’s talking about – the kind of depression that keeps you in bed for days. I get antsy when I don’t get outside, when I’m not doing something physical.

There is also a stigma about depression and mental illness and I just like that he shares what it’s like. And he’s humble about it.
