Kelly conquered the Inca Trail and made it to Machu Picchu! The trek starts at 9,186ft - the highest point in the 27.5 mile hike is 13,780 ft! So no small feat, to say the least!
In addition to strength training 3 X Week, Kelly did the following (and A LOT more) to prepare for her big adventure:
- Hiked Mount Bonnell 5 times with a 20# pack!
- Walked 12 miles with a 15# pack
- Walked 8.3 miles with a 20# pack... and then climbed the Hill of Life 5 times!
- Repeatedly tackled Lost Creek, Ladrea Norte, and Jester Boulevard
Kelly, your dogged determination to be prepared and ready to make the trek and HAVE FUN was an inspiration to all of us! We're very proud of your accomplishments!*
