2017 AT Thruhike Training

No matter how many miles you do in a day for training, it’ll never prepare you 100% for the AT. I try to do 5-10 mile hikes after work during the week, but I still go home to my family, various food choices, shower, etc.

Though, I’ve been sleeping on my hardwood floor since November 2016; in my sleeping bag and on my sleeping pad.

So when it comes to sleeping anywhere, I am mega prepared. I’m one of those folks who can pass out on a couch with my head/limbs hanging off.

Mentally, I feel confident. I’m not nervous, but I know it’s because I’m not travelling to Georgia until next month.

The thing is, when I’m out in the nature, I am me. I don’t know how to describe it other than that I am fully in my element; I am myself. Even in bad weather, challenging terrain, little food… I feel fully alive and myself.

I’ve been mentally on the trail for the last few months. I just need to get going.
