Morning Edition Wednesday, February 15th: Jennifer Pharr Davis Hiking the Appalachian Trail

Jennifer Pharr Davis, an Asheville resident, broke the overall record for the shortest time taken to hike the entire Appalachian Trail from end to end in the summer of 2011. Before that, she had hiked the entire trail two previous times: The first on her own, chronicled in her book "Becomming Odyssa," the second and third times with her husband, Drew Davis, an Asheville teacher who wrote his own book about his supporting role in breaking the record.
