Podcast: Karl Meltzer Completes The Appalachian Trail In Record Time!
Around 2,200 miles.
That’s roughly the length of the Appalachian Trail. It runs from Georgia all the way up to Maine and offers stunning views of the Eastern Mountains.
Many people set off to hike the trail, but only 20% actually complete it! Which on average, takes 5-7 MONTHS.
Except if you’re Karl “Speedgoat” Meltzer… then you do the entire trail in just 45 days, 22 hours and 38 minutes.
Damn. That’s speedgoat alright.
Karl just set a new record for the AT and I am honored to have him on the podcast today to share his passion, drive, and enthusiasm with you (and me).
Even if you hate running, you’ll perhaps find some nuggets of wisdom over the hour. We share training motivations, life mottos and more… I think you have to when you’re talking about something so grand at 2,200 miles. Don’t you?

What is the farthest you’ve ever hiked or run?
For me, it was definitely the 50K (2016 recap). The thought of 2200 miles… umm not so sure about that!
