This week Andy is very excited to talk with Hiker, Runner, & Outdoor Educator Heather Diaz!
Heather Diaz is a former experienced long-distance runner and first-generation hiker from the suburbs of Houston, Texas. She moved around Texas for her bachelor’s and graduate degrees. Life took her to San Francisco in 2012 to chase her career, and she met her partner along the way. He asked her to go on a hike for their first date, which led to thru-hiking nearly 2300 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail two years later (2017). What a loaded question! The rest is history.
Her other passions include weightlifting, day-hiking, backpacking, camping, cycling, conservation, and helping even the most novice feel included and empowered in the outdoors.
You can now find her day-hiking along the Central Coast or Bay area. Look out for the girl in purple pants or vibrant colors or patterns, and she might be picking up trash at her favorite local preserve too. In 2021, she and her partner, Stephen, are planning to finish the Sierra section they skipped.
