HiB30 Winner Profile - Lynnette PenachoMeet Lynette! She and Ryan (age 1) competed in the HiB30 Challenge this June and won a pair of Cruzer shoes from our sponsors at Evolv. Congratulations!

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?

This was our second time doing the challenge. We did all 30 miles back in March but this time around we were moving from Texas to California at the same time so it didn’t work out like I hoped. We loved what we did do though!

What was the biggest obstacle you faced during this Challenge and how did you overcome it?

Moving in the middle and staying with family. We did what we could but I wish I would have made it more of a priority – life was just crazy at the time.

Where was your favorite hike this month? Why is it your favorite?

We hiked through my parents new neighborhood in the mountains of CA and it was nice getting to know their neighborhood better.

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?

The first time I did the challenge I thought it would be really difficult to do all 30 miles but it actually ended up being easier than I thought. This time was thrown off my our move so I suppose my advice would be to would be to get out as much as you can, take it one day at a time and don’t move at the same time, haha.

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

Not as planned, haha

Do you already have big plans for the prize that you won? Tell us how excited you are about your win!

Well I admit I don’t know a ton about the shoes I’ve won but I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of comfy casual shoes I can just throw on and these look like they might fit the bill so I’m excited about that!

Thanks so much to our partners at  Evolv for the awesome shoes! Remember, all you have to do is register for the next HiB30 Challenge to be entered to win prizes like this!
