my pedometer says so wrote:

I walk 10,000 steps a day, which is close to 50 miles. I won my office walk challenge, and even beat the fat lady from HR.

One of the reasons this message board can suck at times...People who have never attempted to do any "Multi-day events" chiming in with how easy it is. We saw it last year with the Jurek thread about the AT record and now have seen it with this thread.

I get it. Everyone on this damn site does 100+mpw at 2:15 marathon pace, so of course doing 50 miles per day is easy, given you have 24 hours to do it. I mean, come one, that's barely under 30 minute per mile pace!

The reality is that doing 50 miles PER DAY, EVERYDAY for 45 (PLUS) DAYS IN A ROW is hard as hell. That is doing 350 Mile weeks every week for the better part of 7 straight weeks Add in elevation, weather, etc and it makes for one hell of a challenge.

Look I don't know if he cheated. Based upon the evidence presented on this board, I would lean towards yes, he was, before Asher called him out.

I ran a bath.....once!
