Make the Most of the Summer Challenge Winner!

In our August issue, we posted a challenge: Make the most of summer using Vermont Sports articles as your guide.

We were impressed with your entries, and we chose Amy Lester of Lebanon, N.H., as the winner of an outdoor gear prize pack worth more than $100, including a hydration pack, wool socks, water bottle and more!

The challenge asked that entrants do the following activities and grab a photograph of each:

  • Hike the Whites
  • Practice yoga outside
  • Ride singletrack
  • Get on the water
  • Run a 5K

That was a tall order to complete in a month, but Amy did it!

Amy says, “I was working most of the summer and felt like I hadn’t had the chance to do close to any of the activities I wanted to. When I read about the August challenge I thought it would be a great way to get out and take advantage of all of Vermont and New Hampshire has to offer. It was a great mix of activities I love to do, had never tried (mountain biking), or just hadn’t done in a while (5K race). My dog Finn joined me for almost all of the activities and we had a great time!” Her boyfriend, Lucas, took all the photos.
