2020 FKT of the year award nominee for the speed record of the White Mountains Direttissima (Unsupported New Hampshire 48 Thru-Hike). I'm a long distance hiker and ultra-runner; I got started in long distance when I thru-hiked the AT NOBO in 2019. Follow me on instagram @_will.peterson
After completing your first long distance hike, it is common to go through several “hiking phases”. I experienced three such phases after completing my Appalachian Trail thru-hike, and these phases have largely impacted my preparation for the Pacific Crest Trail.
