Friday Favorites - 52 Hike Challenge


I love a good challenge. Last October I participated in a "Write 31 Days" challenge, but that wasn't painful enough so I added a 31 day running challenge on top of it. I might have been a couple posts short of 31 with the writing challenge, but I nailed the running challenge! It's been a couple months though and it's a fresh new year, so I think it's time for another challenge.

I have absolutely loved working on my "Sunday Stroll" series focusing on local trails, and one thing I really want to do more of in 2017 is backpacking. I had done some intense trails in early 2016 but running took up most of my time towards the end of the year and I just didn't get to the mountain trails as much as I wanted, so with the start of 2017 I decided to take on the 52 Hike Challenge!

The goal of the 52 Hike Challenge is to complete 52 hikes within one year, and I can't wait to get started! I signed up for the Adventure Series which has a short list of objectives like 5 waterfalls, one stewardship hike, etc. Easy peasy.

If the 52 Hike Challenge is something you're interested in, go ahead and sign up at and let's get a local group together! Time to pull on the hiking boots, and I'll see you out there.
