1100 Mile Challenge Report

Dear readers:  A year ago, I was inspired by Cheryl Strayed’s long hike and pledged to bike 1000 miles and hike 100 miles in 2015.

I succeeded in biking 1000 miles without too much difficulty, mostly on local (Minnesota) country roads and bike paths.  It was a fun experience for the most part.  (It helped that we had a really nice summer–not too hot or humid for once.)

I ditched the hiking challenge, though.  (After getting physical therapy for my knee, my PT wanted me to do some jogging just to see if I could.  My knee was fine, so I decided to focus on combining walking/jogging rather than hiking.)

Here are a few snapshots from some of my rides.

Do you have any challenges for 2016?
