Year Three of the 52 Hike Challenge
One80Out has been talking a lot on their adventure blog about the 52 Hike Challenge that they are doing and working towards completing this year.
I myself am also doing the 52 Hike Challenge again in 2019 but this will be my third year of doing the challenge.
Year one is about excitement of a new tradition and busting out the doors to hike more often and hike in more places. It’s exhilarating and a wonderful way to carry the theme of getting into the great outdoors with you everywhere you go.
Does the enthusiasm start to wade after doing it once or twice?
Hardly. Well it could but here’s three ways in which I have a renewed sense of excitement each time I do another 52 Hike Challenge. My challenge to you is to make this a part of your life for decades to come, not just a one off.
I think in conclusion the 52 Hike Challenge is like all opportunities we are presented in life. See how much you can stretch yourself and others around you. See what you are made of. See what you can take from it and learn from it every single day. See how it can make you a better and kinder person not just on the trail but off the trail as well.
The 52 Hike Challenge is a great life changing project to take on, especially in year one. However as I am in year three I have found that if you allow the joy and the wonder to be completely there each year is a new chapter of an amazing untold story.
The untold story of your life. You will get into it as much as you are able to put into it. Don’t just do the same 52 hikes on the same 52 days as the year before. Push yourself into that zone of being uncomfortable and grow yourself and those around you!
