70 day thru hike

On May 24th, 2019 I set out to hike the entire Appalachian Trail in 70 days. I am an ultrarunner. I started training specifically for this project in December 2018 by setting the unsupported FKT on the NJ section of the AT, finishing three 50-mile ultramarathons and one 100k, and running upwards of 100 miles per week. The challenge of doing the AT fast and seeing what my mind and body are capable of is extremely motivating.

Dudley DoRight on the AT

Trail Name: Dudley DoRight and Dyna Mite

Start Date: February 17, 2019

Other: Off the Trail due to Foot Issues (preexisting peripheral neuropathy). May return if a workable pain solution is found.
