Appalachian Trail / Titusville, FL
I never once dreamed of attempting such a feat. In the past I was the one who joked that I don't run, that donuts and tacos are my life (okay, they still are), and that the outdoors were fun, but sweat was not. Now everything about how I view and interact with the environment has changed, and I couldn't be more thrilled to experience it in such an encompassing way. I am most looking forward to the community – to meet other hikers and hear their stories, learn from their experiences, and broaden my perception of the world around me, having that understanding challenged.
