HIB30 Winner Profile - Jennifer GallagherMeet Jennifer! She joined in the June HiB30 Challenge with Ellie (3) Evie (1) by hiking with the HiB Pioneer Valley MA branch and won a HIB Babyclava + HIB Tshirt ! You could win prizes like this just by registering for the next HiB Challenge in September!

Was this your first Challenge? If yes, how did it motivate you to get outdoors? If this was not your first Challenge, how was it different from your previous experience?
It was our first challenge, and it definitely pushed me to get outside. I also really counted outside time that counted differently and was surprised at how many miles could accumulate so quickly!

What was the biggest obstacle you faced during this Challenge and how did you overcome it?
I can’t really think of an obstacle we overcame. In general, it can be a struggle to fit in outside time!

Where was your favorite hike this month? Why is it your favorite?    
There were so many, but i think scouting some trails with my friend and branch lead Sarah Quarles were my faves!

How easy or hard was it to get out and accomplish the miles you achieved? Any advice for families who think they could never do 30 miles in 30 days?    
It was honestly hardest to log the miles for me, like physically keep track of them.

If you could describe your HiB30 Challenge this June in 3 words what would they be and why?
