Old Ridgerunner and the PCT

On April 9th 2009, "Old Ridgerunner" Smith Edwards of Stowe, Vermont set out to accomplish his dream to hike the entire Pacific Crest Trail.  Three years and 2650 miles later this 71 year old local resident wears the medal to prove he did it.  His training started in earnest the year before when his doctor told him he needed to lose weight.  He did.  When he started his adventure on the Mexican Border in 2009 he had shed over 57 pounds.  Interested in what it takes to accomplish such a milestone?  You can read about the Old Ridgerunner's feat in his 141 entry journal.  Congratulations Smith!  You are an inspiration.
