    44 days, 4 hours and 54 minutes, according to Horton, who was there. Fantastic!

    Halfway up Katahdin! He stopped for an hour or two at the Katahdin Stream campground, and started up around 4am.

    I found his Garmin tracker yesterday. https://share.garmin.com/kristianmorgan
    This shows him just short of Pollywog stream, about 34 miles out.
    Probably too late in the day to finish? I'm not...

    But that gap was the Presidentials. Looks like he had good weather to get through them this morning but the mileage gap at the end of today will be more meaningful than yesterday's.

    I'm seeing him about 33 miles down at what I assume is the end of the day today. So he's not slowing down, but he's not gaining either. I'm only going by his tracker which shows his progress and...

    When I ran a very short way with him last week, he asked if there was a break in the heat coming, and was happy to hear there was. So he's feeling the heat, just not letting it beat him. I'm sure...

    I ran a couple miles with Kristian this evening. I agree that he's looking good, and is in great spirits. Had some trouble with quads but it is getting better. Going down the Priest today was not...

    I'm sure he's used to it!

    I thought I added a word of respect to you, Matt, for starting this thread on his attempt on your record but I guess I lost it before posting. Classy move on your part.

    btw the name is spelled John Andersen, not Anderson.

    We're not sure why the tracker stopped. His crew overnight said there were long gaps at night too. It relies on a cell phone signal, but I was at the finish (kiosk/parking lot immediately south of...

    Shows what a logistical challenge it is, as well as physical. Hope he has a good adventure the rest of the way.
  12. Yeah, it looks like at the end or beginning of...

    Yeah, it looks like at the end or beginning of every day it bounces wildly, which makes it hard to tell where he begins and ends a day. Maybe they are staking out and he is being driven to a...

    I'm told by one of the past Barkley finishers that he provided such an introduction. Whether it's enough, who knows? And whether Karel is suited fo finish Barkley is another question entirely. Two...

    When I met him, and from a couple FB videos I saw him do, he seemed very aware of his standing and what he needed to do. I find it almost impossible for him to believe that he dropped to barely...

    Yeah, an hour or more later than I expected. Maybe a sit down meal break at the foot of the mountain? It's also possible that the feed was delayed, though if I understand correctly that would just...

    He made it! Apparently just within the last few minutes. FB Live just started a couple minutes ago from the top, but I caught about 5 seconds by the sign then it stopped. 2:10pm at the very...

    I'm sure that pic is familiar with some of you. I confirmed with Google street view that is Golden Road, coming up to Abol Br and the final 15 miles.

    Another picture apparently at Golden Rd at 7:30. So, 15 miles left. Finish around noon? Depends on how the sleep deprived climb goes, but I've seen him climb, he doesn't slow his pace much!

    So it sounds like at 2am he was 16 miles from Abol Br and 15 miles from there to the finish?

    Sure, but I saw first hand a time when he stopped with 2+ hours of daylight and 6.5 fairly easy miles to the next crossing, and I made sure they knew it, and they passed.

    And as you say, a more...

    Part of the story is time spent on trail. Karel seems to have had a lot of days where he was done around 6 or 7pm. While I think this has helped him stay relatively fresh and uninjured, it is a...
