UPDATE: I will be attempting a supported FKT for the NY portion of the Appalachian Trail on July 1st, 2017 traveling SoBo. As far as I know there is no current record, so this will be to set the bar. Training has been going well and I am updating my goal to 20 hours. I will be starting at 4:00AM so hitting my goal would put the record on a single calendar day.
If I reach the NY/NJ state line within my 20 hour goal time I will continue the journey in an attempt to break Matt Kirk's 24-hour record of 99 miles. The end point of my attempt will become RT 517 in Glenwood NJ (or beyond if I have time) which is 99.9 miles from the start, according to the Summit Post trail mileage chart.
When finished I will provide a Strava link as well as a blog write-up.

On July 1st I attempted the NY portion of the AT supported, and dropped out at mile 45. Attached is a blog write-up for the day as well as my strava data. I will hopefully be making another attempt sometime next year.
