The Crunchy Trail : Mile 1- Step 1

Our first mile is going to be the most challenging for many, require the most changes, and take the largest amount of effort and concentration.  This is a VERY steep part of the trail so we are going to take small steps and rest often. 

This part of the hike cannot be completed quickly, one can’t run on this part of the trail, there is no speed walking; slow and steady is the pace, one step at a time, one foot in front of the other.  There will be trip hazards, falls, tumbles, don’t worry, just get up and keep going. Allow yourself  rest stops,  wandering room, and escape routes.  Together we WILL get to the top. 🙂  Grab a bottled water, lace up those shoes and let’s get going.
