About 52 Hike Challenge
After going through a difficult divorce, Karla was inspired by a man named Phillip to begin hiking. A decade earlier, Phillip was overweight and unhappy. To make a positive lifestyle change he took to the trails to get in shape, eventually losing and keeping off the weight by progressing his hiking capabilities.
Karla challenged herself to one hike per week as a means to get in shape and start feeling better about her situation. With Phillip as her guide, they both completed her goal. Once her challenge was complete, Karla couldn’t believe the positive impact that the outdoors had on her mind, body and soul.
