    I'm glad for the lag until the challenge officially starts. It gives me an opportunity to ramp up on the daily challenges, in particular. I'm hoping to really turn things around in my approach to sustainability.

    • Hello Tobin and Barbara! We're so glad that Durham is joining us this year! Yes - the time before the challenge is just as important. Gives space to reflect, gear up, hopefully get others involved, too. Please let us know if you need anything along the way! - Deborah McNamara, EcoChallenge Staff
