See this little dude in the picture below? This is a kid that absolutely hated hiking last year. We tried taking him a couple of times and he did more resting, snacking and crying than he actually did walking.
This is his second hike so far this year. Two hikes in January for a kid that hated hiking is pretty impressive. Today we did a 3.1 mile hike and he took it like a champ. In fact, he ended up running a lot of it. We finished the hike the 90 minutes. Last year, a one-mile hike would take us an hour or more. It’s amazing how much difference a year can make.
