Podcast: Episode 105: Adirondack 46ers with Alyssa Godesky and Sarah Keyes


This is cool!  The two ladies started on the same route at approximately the same time, but from different places - who would complete the route first?

"I’m very surprised we seem to be the first to have done a “race” style FKT, it certainly added a fun element to the attempt." - SARAH

"It was good to know Sarah was out there - a little different because it added pressure, but helpful." - ALYSSA

The 'Beast Coast' sometimes doesn't get enough attention, and the two women describe what makes it special ... and hard.

"There are no switchbacks ... the trails go straight up or down". - ALYSSA

"I've travelled all over, but to live, I came back here. I love it." - SARAH
