Thank you for being a part of the adventures in 2018!

Finishing in the top 10 fastest known times on the Appalachian Trail in 49 days, 14 hours and some change was by far one of the most memorable experiences of my life. I will always treasure sharing the saga with my father as well as everyone who sent good energy near and far. The geography of this country and people I met along the way were amazing! The AT (photo below) is magical and I’d encourage you to get out and experience it especially if you haven’t yet. The documentary “Like Harvey, Like Son”, directed by Rudy Harris, really captures the adventure and hopefully you’ll have a chance to see it at a film festival or another format by the end of 2019. Mike Trimpe and ROAD iD were instrumental along with Doug Bertram and Structural Elements. A great thanks also to Tracey Outlaw for being a great friend and storyteller immersing everyone in the AT experience, perhaps giving followers a more live experience than ever before for a FKT attempt with his constant updates.

Finishing the Badwater 135, a short 5 days after completing the Appalachian Trail was extremely tough in a year that saw 30% of the field drop with the hottest temperatures in recent times topping 126 degrees. This was by far my toughest Badwater. I had to be patient and endure more time on the course but my crew of Matt Garrod, Jeff Harmon, Alann Lopes and Peter Matus really helped to keep the energy positive. I’m not sure anyone has finished as long of a race that close to finishing a long distance trek like the AT before.

Next to finishing the AT; what I am most excited about was running a PR of 2:46:00 on a legit course at the Athens, Ohio Marathon. It’s wild that after 27 years of running the marathon it’s still possible to improve.

I ran more races in 2018 than each of the previous two years and had more top 3 finishes; running 22 races and finishing top 3 in 9 races. I really enjoyed racing Winston’s FASTTrack 24 last January finishing 1st with 153.49 miles at a point where I was still getting back to 100% from the 241 miles run at Big Backyard ultra with Guillermo.

Definite highlights beyond races would be local runs with Kelly, friends and our dog Carly. Exploring Portugal for a 5th consecutive year with RunQuest Travel; experiencing it with each of our guests and Portuguese friends.

No slowing down.. The next great adventure waits on the horizon!

I plan be share it along with my schedule for 2019 in just the next few days.

Thank you for sharing in the journey! Many wishes for your year ahead. #DreamBig
