A Little About Jennifer
Jennifer Pharr Davis is an internationally recognized adventurer, speaker, author, and entrepreneur who has hiked more than 14,000 miles of trails on six different continents.

In 2011 she set the overall fastest known time on the Appalachian Trail by finishing the 2,185-mile footpath in 46 days (an average of 47 miles a day). And she hasn't slowed down since.
Jennifer has backpacked 700 miles pregnant, walked across North Carolina while nursing her newborn son, and hiked in all 50 states with her two-year-old daughter.
As an author, Jennifer has published eight books, including her "empowering blueprint on resilience" The Pursuit of Endurance (Penguin Random House), best-selling adventure memoir Becoming Odyssa, and award-winning project I Come from a Place with celebrated Southern watercolorist Alan Shuptrine.
