Hiking for fun (and a cause)

We're so blessed to live in a country where hiking trails are at most of our fingertips. One of the first things we did in the beautiful sunshine this past weekend was a nice 20 km hike on the Seaton Trail - a mere 40 minutes from Toronto. We packed a tasty lunch, a lot of hearty snacks and some water, and off we went to enjoy our day in the wilderness. Though we like to hike anyway, we're now focused on training for the Oxfam Trailwalker Canada (to raise money for Oxfam) - a 100 km hike that must be completed in 48 hours. We have a team of four and are hoping to get it done with in around 30 hours. Um, that's 30 hours straight ... 30 hours of walking. No sleep. Just a few breaks where our trusted support crew will meet up with us to feed us a warm meal and provide us with some much-needed encouragement. This whole thing sounds rather ambitious, don't you think? Well, that's why we'll be doing a good deal of hiking over the next few months.
