Jennifer Pharr is claiming she did the Appalachian Trail in a record 46 days going from Katahdin on June 16. And she had time to blog!
“Claims?” I’ve seen a lot of discussion ultrarunner circles by both people who know her personally and who don’t know her personally. In all the discussion I don’t recall anyone who has expressed any doubt whatsoever that she actually did it. She’s also a rather fast ultra-trail runner, with an ultra-signup rating of 86% – meaning she averaged only 14% slower than the overall winners in the events that she’s run. http://ultrasignup.com/results_participant.aspx?fname=Jennifer&lname=Pharr%20Davis&age=28
