365 Mile Challenge (2018)

Near the end of 2017, I learned about the organization Hike Like a Woman (HLAW) and their 365 Mile Challenge. The idea is to log 365 human powered miles in one year. Walking, running, hiking, snow shoeing, skiing, swimming, bicycling, anything self-propelled counts. There’s a private Facebook group for community support, monthly giveaways, and newsletters for added motivation. It costs $25 to join the challenge (when registration first opened in November it was discounted, so I only paid $15 to sign up).

My goal for this challenge is to walk our dog, Niko, 365 miles this year. I would like to walk him more than that, but I’m using 365 miles as a starting point as it is a lot more than I walked him last year. I want to get in the habit of walking him everyday, no matter the weather. As of January 12th, I’ve missed 2 days due to being out of town and we have logged over 18 miles.

*moving closer to my work has its benefits i.e. longer walks at lunch, occasional walk before work, and a nicer area to walk  🙂
