I am out of shape. Completely out of shape and need something to get me out of my comfort zone. Last year one of my goals was to get in shape enough to hike to the top of Clingman's Dome in the Smoky Mountains. I did that in October with my family and we loved every minute of it. This year I want to make a concerted effort to hike more and the 52 Hike Challenge is just what I need to get there. This works out to one hike per week for a year.
So today, after church we changed into our warm clothes and headed to the local park to complete our first hike. It was 39 degrees but at least it was sunny. So we now have one hike down, 51 more to go!
