DAVIDSON – While some of us are trying to make time for a little exercise a few days a week, Jennifer Pharr Davis blasted through the 2,181-mile Appalachian Trail in 46 days.
That’s an average of 47 miles every day. On foot.
The three-time thru-hiker will share her experiences with the public Oct. 30 at Davidson Day School.
She’ll show slides from 12,000 miles of long-distance hiking completed on six continents.
Davis will talk about the challenges she faced and the lessons she learned and will take questions from the audience.
Following her talk, she will sign copies of her new book, “Called Again: A Story of Love and Triumph.”
Davis’s trek in 2011 made her the fastest person to the hike the trail, and the first woman to ever set the mark. National Geographic named her “Adventurer of the Year” in 2012.
Her appearance starts at 7 p.m. in Gordon Theater, 750 Jetton St. Tickets are limited and cost $10 for adults and $5 for students with I.D.
