Formerly known as "THRU-HIKER"

Tuesday, April 08, 2014

Hey, everybody. I changed my username! I recently came to the conclusion that I'll never get over my #1 fear of bugs enough to be able to hike the Appalachian Trail. I've come to terms with it, and I'm okay. I felt like I needed to change my name, because I don't want to seem like a phony. Plus, it still kinda hurts a little to know that it's not gonna happen.

I do, on the other hand, want to become a personal trainer someday, so I think that my new name will help me to focus on that long-term goal. I'm here if you need my help. I'm rooting for y'all! Thanks for sticking by my side.

    I think there's a lot to be said about being realistic in our lives, even in our dreams. Kudos to you for realizing what you have. I know it must be painful but you have a lot to offer folks so get busy on that. Have a lovely day! emoticon

    Not to mention the minimum amount of about $5,000 needed for equipment and supplies. Yikes! Maybe if I ever get out of debt! I would like to hike a small section of the AT. I just won't be able to do the whole thing all at once. But life goes on. :)
