In this episode, I had the pleasure of catching up with Nick Fowler for the third time. Now, you might remember Nick as the guy who conquered the Self-Supported Fastest Known Time (FKT) on the Pacific Northwest Trail and the Ozark Trail in our previous chats. Back then, he was dealing with some pesky ankle injuries but was determinedly preparing for a shot at the Self-Supported FKT on the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT).
It's been a fantastic journey following Nick's evolution as a runner, hiker, and all-around person. And guess what? Nick not only took on the PCT challenge but crushed it in a jaw-dropping 52 days, 9 hours, and 18 minutes! We dive deep into his experiences, lessons learned, and how he's grown. His journey has it all….including blood, sweat, and tears!
So, if you're up for some inspiring stories and a good dose of ultrarunning enthusiasm, you're in for a treat. Nick's journey is a testament to dedication and pushing boundaries, and it's always a blast chatting with him!
