Welcome to the group. Don't forget to track your mileage. See the thread starting a virtual hike - that's where we've been posting our miles. Yes, it's a long hike but It's so interesting to see where you can get to. It makes me feel like I've accomplished something when I go out on my walks then find myself on the AT. Have fun.

Start with small steps and momentum will build. Celebrate moving in the direction of increased happiness now! With a plan and persistence moving towards your goals all things are possible! ♥ From
Much Love & Hugs, Ramona

I've been thinking of my fitness goals for the new year. I want to pick goals that keep me athletic, and also have a motivating element. I love to hike and am working my way up and down the 48 4000 footers in NH [48 mountains that are 4000' or higher]. I've done 10 and will keep going, but I wanted a way to track all the other walking, elliptical, swimming and biking mileage I do separate from hiking. Then I thought of the Appalachian. I as a little bummed to find that the mileage is much higher than I expected. But then I thought I could set a goal to virtually hike half of it in the upcoming year. I think it works out to an average of ~20 miles per week which seems challenging, but manageable.
I am excited to find a group on SP where others are making a virtual journey on the trail as well.
