About Tom Jamrog

I'm sixty-seven and live in the Maine woods. I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2007, the Pacific Crest Trail in 2010, Vermont's Long Trail in 2011, the Continental Divide Trail in 2013, the Camino Portugese (2016), and Newfoundland's East Coast Trail (2017) . I am outdoors every day. I offer guided backpacking trips and classes in Maine, through "Uncle Tom's Guided Adventures".

    That is amazing, to “run continuously for 10 to 12 days, with intermittent catnaps”. How is it possible? If you found this article interesting, you should enjoy “Born to Run,” by Christopher McDougall. It’s a story about extreme running with a look at evolution and how humans came to be the great runners that they are.
