Podcast: Episode 32: Jeff ("Legend") Garmire - why thru-hikers are faster (and more relaxed) than ultrarunners on long trails

Jeff just did the Arizona Trail Self-Supported, 9 hours faster than the Supported time! How do thru-hikers do that?

"I work it out so I can go for hours without even taking off my pack - bending over to get water out of a stream takes time."

Really? Yes, really - thru-hikers work to save seconds on trips that may take months. Jeff has done the Calendar Triple Crown and the Great Western Loop, while only running one ultra - listen to how a real thru-hiker approaches these huge trips.

"I was going to start the AZT on April 4, but didn't feel like it ... so I just waited and started the next day."
