2,650 miles of Keto… DONE
On Sept 24th, I finished the Pacific Crest Trail and walked into Canada. In the days and weeks that followed, it felt like that first moment after waking up after a night’s sleep, when the tangible details of a dream are still clear and sharp when recalled but within moments begin to fade and become hazy. I did a long and silly thing, and now it's over.
2650 miles (give or take a forest fire)
One hundred and fifty days
Thirty-six mail drops
Six pairs of shoes
Ten pairs of socks
Three toenails gone
And what about the keto numbers?
Under 40 grams of carbs per day
10 non-keto meals out of 450
And (only) fifteen pounds lost.
I can say, without any hesitation, that you CAN thru-hike on keto. And you should. It was great. Stay tuned for why.
