Josh Garnett hiked 45 miles a day to break the Pacific Crest Trail record on an entirely vegan diet.

Three days into the trek Garnett collapsed of heatstroke in the Southern California San Felipe Hills. With over 2,500 miles left on his trail he began to have doubts that he could make the trip from Mexico to Canada in less than 60 days.

"I started shivering in the 100 degree heat. I took 24 hours off and really didn't think I could continue. Needless to say, I'm glad that I didn't stop."

Garnett completed the trail after 59 days, 8 hours and 59 minutes - the fastest time in the tail's history.
