#42 - The Journey of a Lifetime with Shan Riggs and Callie Vinson

February 18, 2021

My guests today are Shan Riggs and Callie Vinson. On December 1, 2020, Shan finished a three-month run across America. Callie was his crew chief for the entire journey that began on September 1, 2020. These two undertook this challenge to raise money for Foodshare, a food bank that supports the Greater Hartford area of Connecticut. Shan and Callie raised $45,000 for the charity in order to fight food insecurity during the COVID-19 pandemic. The cross-country run took 92 total days (84 running days). Shan covered 3,255 total miles averaging 38.75 miles per day. He went through 10 pairs of shoes and consumed over 4,000 calories per day. In the episode, Shan and Callie recap their three-month journey to give listeners a little insight into what it's like running across the country!
