Update: PCT record broken! »
That rad vegan we told you about earlier this week, Josh Garrett, has gone and shattered the speed record on the PCT! He finished in 59 days, 8 hours, and 59 minutes—that’s an average of 45 miles a day.
Let’s just ponder that for a minute. You wake up, you walk a marathon, then you’re like, sweet, let’s walk 20 more miles or so, then you go to bed on the ground, then you wake up and are like, hey, let’s do that again today! For two months straight. Dude must be tired, someone get him some vegan ice cream or something.
He’s still collecting donations for Mercy For Animals, so maybe this is a good way to nag your friends to give money? A couple days ago Josh’s girlfriend told The Spokesman,"He’s sleep-deprived and exhausted. He wants it over. The only thing keeping him going is thinking about the animals he’s representing." THINK ABOUT THE ANIMALS! And how gross his feet must look. No wait, don’t think about that, sorry.
Vegan Hiker set to break Pacific Crest Trail speed record! »
The Pacific Crest Trail runs 2,655 miles, from Mexico to Canada. Hiking it is a pretty badass feat that normally takes a fit, outdoorsy person, oh, five or six months. But Josh Garrett, an incredible vegan, is about to finish it in about 59 days, probably tonight or tomorrow morning. The previous record is 64 days.
Even better? He’s doing the hike to raise awareness for Mercy For Animals. There’s still time to sponsor him, and MFA has a great Q&A with him on their site.
Look for an update when he CRUSHES it! Go Josh!
