For me finishing the 7.5 mile training hike would be just as momentous as the Challenge because I rarely hiked much until this past year. Like some other activities, I began to really enjoy walking in the woods by osmosis since this was a repeated event with a friend but I rarely hiked farther than a few miles. This was my own personal challenge!

More than that, we rejoice in our suffering, knowing that suffering produced endurance.
