John Muir trail adventure

 Getting super excited about stating my adventure Sunday. I will be fastpacking the JMT from South to North and hopefully all the way back. I have Yo Yo'd the trail once before in 04 and established a speed record.  I was hoping to break the woman's unsupported one way  record but going this direction will be a lot harder I think, since I will have to deal with the altitude going up Whitney and heading right out on the trail after my summit. I will try though ;-)
 I know it won't be easy all alone out there but that is why I am doing it. If everything goes as planned I will head back from Yosemite. I hope to finish around 14 days. Like I said this direction will be much harder than my first Yo Yo which was north to south. I have to summit Whitney twice ;-) so that will make it harder.
11 passes each direction = 22 passes total. I pray that the weather will be on my side. Anyone who has done the JMT knows that weather is a factor on how fast you can go. I have been blessed by weather most of the 9 times I have fastpacked the JMT so hopefully it will be nice out there ;-)
You can follow my facebook page or if you are not a friend follow my fan page. I will try to be in touch with Andy a few times while I am out there so I will have him post.

 Please send me positive vibes on my adventure ;-)

Hi Catra,

Awesome blog!
I'm working on an article about running and veganism. I was wondering if you could answer a few questions.
Thanks.
Clint
