At 53 days, 6 hours, 37 minutes, Joe "String Bean" McConaughy holds the supported speed record on the Pacific Crest Trail. Joe covered around 50 miles a day in the summer of 2014, making his way northbound from Mexico to Canada. When you work that hard, you have to eat that much - Joe consumed around 8,000 calories a day. The project is called “Run for Colin”, named after Joe’s baby cousin who lost a battle with Neuroblastoma.
It made me realize that dedication, heart, and passion - especially passion - can get you through doors that you never thought possible.
The Gregory Tempo 8 Hydration Backpack is built to help you step up your running game with plenty of pocket space for easy access to what you need on the trail. The Hydrapak Shape-Shift reservoir makes sure that you stay hydrated when you're logging the miles. Most importantly, however, the Tempo 8 is designed from the ground up for bounce-free stability. The Wraptor harness hugs your body like it's a part of you, and multiple compression straps ensure the most stable fit possible.
Perfect for inhibiting overactive muscles and stretching your favorite pastry doughs! On the trail, Joe's "pie roller" picked up sweat, dirt, blood, and tears. He later used this in the kitchen to add salt, texture, and nostalgia to his pasta.
