In this edition of the Summit Sessions I'll speak with Bethany Garretson and Katie Rhodes, who are less than a week off the trail after completing the first ever officially documented female unsupported thru hike of the 46 high peaks in the Adirondacks, setting an official FKT at just over 7 days. A terrific story of fun, perseverance, friendship, and grit. You'll want to hear this story.
One of Katie's main sources of strength in arduous times is the memory of her brother Tim, who took his own life on January 1, 2011 after a long battle with mental health and a severe neurological condition. This is one reason we decided to participate in 46 Climbs for Suicide Prevention to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) as part of our attempt. You can support our efforts to raise suicide awareness and prevention here, donations accepted until 12/31/20:
