About to finish my second Spartan Trifecta in November then I'm officially focused on the AT. Flip-flopping or section hiking it-whatever you wanna label it. I'm 39 and decided a few years ago to stop bein scared of everything and just go do it. I've had reservations about it the night before the big plunge, but never regrets after finishing. People ask me why I'm doin these things and my answer is just,"Why not?"
