6 years ago I was battling depression.
The life I’d built had crumbled.
I was injured and couldn’t run or hike, the only things that were keeping me alive.
I knew that I was on the cusp of transformation. But it was going to require me to do something unimaginable, and given my current state, stupid.
Yet I could not back away from the deep instinctual urge to answer a call…
A call to return to the mountains of the Pacific Crest: To accept their challenge to give up my notion of what I was capable of and immerse myself completely in their lessons.
In the process, I discovered myself for the first time…
Now, I tell the story in my own words. My first book Thirst: 2600 Miles to Home (chronicling my 2013 Pacific Crest Trail record)–published by the non-profit publisher Mountaineers Books–is now available.
