Yesterday Joe McConaughy (“Stringbean”) set a new unsupported FKT for Vermont’s Long Trail in 4 days, 23 hours and 54 minutes, which equates to about 54 miles per day across constant roots, rocks, and muck.
Join us tomorrow (Wednesday, June 17) at 8 PM EDT for “Story time with Stringbean,” during which we’ll rehash the highs and lows of his remarkable athletic achievement. Joe will be caught up on sleep by then, but everything will still be fresh in his mind.
Registration for this event is required, and spots are limited. Register here.

What questions do you have for Joe? Leave a comment and we’ll be sure to get to it (assuming it’s a good one).
Is your training able to fully develop your “trail legs?” In other words, if you were able to spend 3-4 weeks entirely on trail prior to an FKT attempt, would you expect to see an improved performance vs your normal training?
