Challenge accepted!  Just signed up for the 2017 52 Hike Challenge. If you are looking for a reason to get out more this year, get in shape or just brag about hiking 52 hikes…check it out! Lets go!  #52hikechallenge2017 #hike7

THE 52 HIKE CHALLENGE IS A GLOBAL MOVEMENT INSPIRING YOU TO TAKE A PERSONAL JOURNEY TO DISCOVER THE PHYSICAL, MENTAL, AND SPIRITUAL BENEFITS GAINED THROUGH HIKING ONCE A WEEK FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR. THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ALL AROUND THE WORLD ARE TAKING THE CHALLENGE TO HELP CHANGE THEIR LIVES IN A POSITIVE WAY, ONE STEP AT A TIME.

imageI went back and counted, and although 2016 was a big year for hiking, with about 300 miles logged.  Even with earning the DNR 125, NPS100, 75 mi DNR Hiking Club patch, and finishing the 26.5mi Curesearch Ultimate Hike I had only written down about 30 hikes.  Setting a goal and having something to work towards stretched me, built my self-confidence, and allowed me to experience so many new trails! This year,  to keep the boots dirty..I’m doing 52!

Have you done the #52hikechallenge?  Hiked more than 52 hikes in a year?  I’d love to hear about it!  Happy Trails!
