On the 3rd June I started my thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail, 2,190 miles in 100 days. This was a dream I had last year, and if you've been following my daily podcast you'll know the challenges I've faced to get to the start line.
During this podcast I’m being interviewed by my awesome sister, Caroline Wellingham. We discuss in detail the challenge, what it was like every day, how I dealt with the high points & low points, what I loved, what I learned and why I won’t be doing the trail again!
