Good on you! Have a great time hiking!

I, I'm sorry to say, have lost my health due to Terminal Caregiving and the major depression that comes from caregiving and have to start over again from the beginning. We work hard, build up our stamina, but we can lose it so easily. Now that I'm an old lady I don't do hot humid summers well at all. But fall is coming, and I want to get my life and energy back and go walking and hiking again.

Two and a half years ago I was the oldest old lady (at age 71 then) to cross the finish line at the Hyner Challenge in central Pennsylvania. Now I'm wheezing when I walk up the hill to my house.

No, I won't do the Hyner Challenge this coming year. Not ready. Need to seriously train and build up strength. I'm a Recovering Couch Potato who has to take things seriously.

But oh boy, would I love to be the Oldest Old Lady To Cross The Finish Line when I'm 75...

I've been a member of SP for a while now. I used walking for my initial exercise and continue to do so today. Hiking again has been a bonus. I was able to hike in the Porkies in the UP this summer and in Great Smokey National Park last summer. Going to Hawai'i next year and looking forward to a couple of hikes there!
