On September 24th, Heather “Anish” Anderson broke the self-supported speed record for the Appalachian Trail. Without any assistance, she made her way nearly 2,200 miles starting in the north from Mt. Katadhin and finishing in the south on Mt. Springer. 54 days, 7 hours, 48 minutes. In this episode, we talk about her battles with self esteem issues, pursuing what you love, and her epic speed record. When asked if she could see herself breaking the recent and much more popularized Scott Jurek supported speed record, Heather says "Yes".
You can’t always expect life to just hand it to you, because it won’t. You have to make that happen to yourself.
Anish finished at Springer Mountain in 54 days, 7 hours, 48 minutes.
