2017 has been all about getting out of my comfort zone, trying new things, and challenging myself – and I hope 2018 is no different.
To kick off my goal-setting for next year, I’ve decided to participate in the 365 Mile Challenge!
It’s something I discovered through Hike Like A Woman (Rebecca, the founder, is also a member of the 365 Mile team), and I immediately fell in love with the idea.
The challenge is simple – log 365 self-propelled miles in 365 days (preferably outdoors). It’s designed to get people outside and get them moving. It’s a great reminder to get out more and a great way to break up a big goal into smaller, more manageable pieces.
I decided to sign up for the challenge for a little extra bit of motivation to get outside more in 2018. I have high hopes for some awesome outdoor adventures this coming year, and I feel like this challenge will give me even more incentive to follow through. I’ve already stolen Mark’s Fitbit to help me track my miles and can’t wait for the challenge to start!
If you’re interested in joining here are the details:
- The challenge runs from January 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018
- Registration opens December 1, 2017
- Cost is $20 USD (between Dec 1 – 20) and $25 (Dec 21 – Jan 31)
- Participants receive a sticker (shipped to US/CAN only), entry into a private Facebook group, discounts on gear, a chance to win giveaways, and all the benefits that come with getting outside more!
Think of it like a big, year-long, virtual fun run – except you can run, swim, hike, walk, cycle, paddle, snowshoe, and more. As long as it gets your body moving and your heart pumping, it counts!
