Did your new year dawn with a fantastic list of New Year resolutions? As 2016 began here in Plymouth Devon I made my usual list of resolutions;
- Eat healthily in conjunction with slightly less delicious chocolate
- Hike more miles in new places
- Hike old places to see the new changes
- Set myself a challenge to beat
It was the last bullet point item that I was struggling with; I could try to beat my daily best, a reasonable 40.8 miles hiked on a humid day in June 2015. No, it didn’t appeal, I needed an excuse to get my hiking boots on every week when possible.
#Walk1000Miles Challenge – The Hashtag
It was whilst I was online on various social networks catching up with the news from my adventurous friends that I started to see the hashtag #walk1000miles mentioned.
