One hike for each week of the year.
What could committing to that mean to you? Certainly, it would be good for your heart, your muscles and your bones. And then there's the adrenaline and endorphins hiking can stimulate that boost your mood and energy levels. And maybe it's something that can bond your family or cement a friendship.
Beyond the personal benefits, I'm betting that a commitment to hiking regularly will make everyone of us care more about the trails we explore and the nature we're inspired by. That's why I've signed up for the 52 Hike Challenge. I want to use it as reminder to get out on the trail every week.
Now, during this pandemic, hiking can be a wonderful antidote to all the anxiety in the air. And we're safer outdoors than in indoor spaces. Groups like the American Hiking Society have great advice for responsible hiking. So, take the challenge and get outdoors!
