The national non-profit No Barriers will host its first No Barriers Warrior Challenge this summer in San Diego. The event is designed to help people transcend their personal barriers — physical, mental or intellectual.
We’ve helped a stroke survivor climb a 14,000-foot peak, inspired a man to lose 100 pounds, and motivated a heart attack survivor to hike again. On Aug. 16 we hope to inspire similar changes in hundreds of Californians in San Diego.

Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve in San Diego
My husband and I both love being outdoors, so much so that for our honeymoon we skied, hiked, and camped down the central California coast.
Now we have a four- and a two-year-old, though, and sometimes just making it to the beach and back is enough outdoors adventure for us!
Recently, however, we had guests in town, and I was looking for an outdoor activity beyond…Continue
