I am also in Alaska. We've been here a year (in Eagle River). I've done a few small hikes this summer and they are very different than hiking in the Arizona desert! My goal is to get in shape enough over this fall/winter/spring so next summer I'll be able to some of the tougher ones. We just went to Aleyska for the first time a few weeks ago - but took the tram up :D I just checked out Thunderbird Falls today and was quite winded up that first part - just to show you were I am. Excited for net summer though when I can hit some of those harder ones - I might even think about checking out that event in Aleyska.

Hello all, I hope everyone is having a great day.

I just joined spark people yesterday and I thought it would be good to have some support in getting healthy.

Here in Alaska we have mountains everywhere and I love to hike them. I recently just signed up for a local event here called the Alyeska Climbathon. The event is in September this year and is a 10 hour event, to hike up Alyeska mountain as many times as you can!!! Last year I was able to complete 6 trips and I'm hoping to squeeze in a 7th trip up the mountain this year. Fingers crossed!!!
