In this episode, I sat down with ultra endurance athlete Timothy Olson for a conversation about his record setting run on the famed Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). We unpacked all that went into his 51 days along the 2,653 mile route (averaging 51+ miles a day!) that runs from the southern terminus of the Mexican border to the Canadian border traversing vast terrain from the desert to alpine mountains. We talk through various challenges including rerouting from fires, missed water drops, animal encounters and some injuries that cropped up. We also break down the positive including the support from his family/friends/fans, moving through beautiful topography and much more.
