HIKING!!

I am so excited!! I have a new fitness goal. Tonight we were at some friends' house and this discussion of hiking came up. Now I have always liked hiking. When I was little, we would go camping and would ALWAYS have a few days of hiking up a mountain or 2. So when this topic came up, I was pretty interested. Then our friend says that every year and sometimes twice a year, he takes 2 or 3 people on this extreme hike at Big Bend. This hike is 32 miles. Yep, you read that right. 32 miles. It takes 14 HOURS solid hiking to finish. So I have made a plan to go in the fall. I know, I know. It sounds crazy. I am so excited though. I have already made the goal to run a half marathon within the year, so I am just going to add this to my list. What do ya'll think? How awesome does that sound????

Umm well the marathon thing sounds great. Not sure about the hiking. LOL I've never been a big fan of hiking, but then I only did it as a kid, so I might have a different opinion now. But if you like hiking, and have an awesome opportunity to do something neat like that, go for it!!! It sounds like a hikers dream! =)

Kenny just reminded me that 14 hours is how long it takes us to get to Birmingham! That's a looong way.... You go, girl. I'm impressed w/anyone that can walk that far!

hiya! I came here via http://workingmomofliam.blogspot.com/!!

Hiking 14 hours sounds fabulous! I, too, camped and hiked as a child, and was a major girl scout (I went all the way through from Brownie to Senior!!!)

However I don't know if I could do it now...with my post-baby weight. Hike a few for me!
