Two thru-hikes across Catalina Island helped Sydney Williams establish the mind-body connection that was necessary. The first hike on the Trans-Catalina Trail was the hardest physical challenge Sydney Williams had ever tackled; it taught her how to love her body, and reminded her that she could do hard things. Nine months before her second journey, she was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. By the time she hiked the island the second time, Williams was 60 pounds lighter. Get inspired and learn more about how to heal your mind and body on the trail. This talk is followed by an optional hike. Please dress accordingly.
