Chris Beha
hiked with Stevie and achieved “Sadly only 7.99 miles and 290 minutes but this challenge definitely reminded me daily to try to get out even though I wasn’t able to daily. Luckily my husband did this challenge too so my son got more miles and minutes than I did for the month.”

Did you notice a change in your family’s attitude about getting outdoors by the end of this winter Challenge?

Emilia – This was my first challenge since the birth of my second child. It was a good motivation to get us out the door. My toddler was appreciative that we did the challenge. She loves to get outside and it is definitely harder with two.
Kelsey – 
We are a pretty outdoorsy family regardless. I didn’t really notice a change.
Shannan –
 It’s so inspiring to see people in all climates getting out of the house!
Chris – 
Yes! We prioritized doing more family hikes versus errand running and chores on the weekends.

What was your favorite moment of this month’s Challenge?

Emilia – Playing in the yard with my two little ones.
Kelsey – 
My son was in his first ski race! 1k in 37minutes 🙂
– My daughter’s curiosity. She fell in love with a rock one day. 🙂
Shannan – 
Getting my husband to join us on a few walks!
Chris – 
No favorite moment. Enjoyed every minute spent hiking with my little guy.
