Right! A 50 per diem average, near enough. Is there research on what that does to your leg muscles over a month? Do the AT runners have to take a long time off afterward to recover from muscle tears? Are they ice-bathing every single night at the hotel? So many questions. The human body is impressive.

Answers to a lot of those questions are buried somewhere on r/running and on other running oriented forums, not sure off the top of my head but there you have it.

Yeaahhhhh I know. But I was thinking about other things. There's just too much.
