The most amazing part of this story is not found at the finish, but is discovered through the many challenges, lessons and relationships that present themselves along the trail. This is Jennifer's story, in her own words, about how she started this journey with a love for hiking and more significantly a love for her husband Brew. Together, they were able to overcome rugged mountains and raging rivers, sleet storms and 100 degree heat, shin-splints and illnesses. They made new friends and tested old friendships; they shared together laughter, and tears -- a lot of tears. But, through it all, they fell more in love with one another and with the wilderness.
By completing this extraordinary amateur feat, Jennifer rose above the culture of multi-million dollar sports contracts that is marked by shortcuts and steroids. This is the story of a real person doing something remarkable. Jennifer Pharr Davis is a modern role-model for women -- and men. She is an authentic hero.

Jennifer Pharr Davis is an incredible athlete and a gifted writer. But in this memoir of her latest accomplishment, breaking the world record for the fastest Appalachian Trail hike, it is not the glamour and giddiness of the feat. Rather the book outlines the true grit, struggles, the trials, the strength when there is none to be found, in order to accomplish this amazing feat. She makes no bones about it when she credits it all to her husband and also the many people who helped her along the way. This book is not so much about Jennifer’s remarkable feat, which is indeed a triumph. Rather it is a gift to the enduring legacy of faith and of loved ones who bear the banner of confidence and support as we seek to realize our dreams in life. Without faith and love there would be no hope, and for Jenn, no record.
