Walk 7,778 miles across the continent?

Today I met and ran 20 miles with GoLite’s Andrew Skurka. In July, 2005 he became the first person to walk the entire 7,778-mile transcontinental Sea-to-Sea Route (fast packing averaged 23 miles a day). Taking just over 11 months. He’s a friend of a friend, so after the run we then went and watched him speak about his epic journey at REI in Seattle. Very cool guy, great talk, go check it out – tour schedule.
