Hike Hallie Christian Noted

A profile of a recent 2,000 miler -- the Rev. Hallie Christian -- appears in the Sun Post-Herald out of Cleveland, Ohio. Published on 20 January 2012, the article is titled "Sun Post-Herald Person of the Week: Rev. Hallie Christian".

Here's the scoop:
Christian recently fulfilled her lifetime dream of walking the Appalachian Trail. Although she walked on the beginning portion of the trail in Georgia and the end of the trail in Maine, she hadn’t had the opportunity to set foot on the middle of the trail.

With the support of her family, Christian traveled to Chicago and Nashville to walk on four different areas of the trail. She describes the trail as “breathtaking.”
While the article refrains from specifying her age, it does picture her and say that she lives in a "continuing care retirement community." (And I'm not exactly sure why she would have to go through Chicago to get to the Trail if she was coming from Cleveland.)
