Episode #86 - Devan Horn (Shawty)

Episode #86 - Devan Horn (Shawty)

Hikin' and Ridin'


For a hiking show, Devan Horn wouldn't normally belong. Yet this extraordinary woman, a long-distance runner and rider, chose to hike the Colorado Trail while her party of five other women did it on horseback. She was able to draw distinctions and comparisons between the two modes of transport and provides great insights.

She also took part in two Mongol Derbys, with a third coming this year. Click on the link to see more details and wild video of this amazing race.

When our conversation turned back to long-distance running she even mulled over the idea of an attempt at an FKT of the Appalachian Trail. I wouldn't put that remarkable feat out of her range.

You can connect with Devan through her Facebook page, at texantemujin.

We had the return of the lovely Sarah Williams in If I Did It Again. As always, Sarah was boundlessly enthusiastic, with some welcome safety tips for women unsure of themselves on the trail.
