Must read

In celebration of his 46th birthday on July 4th, Health Fitness Revolution founder Samir Becic has spent the last 4 and half weeks hiking 464 miles in Aspen, CO! He is hiking 10 miles for each year he’s been alive (10 x 46= 460 miles) with a 55lbs+ backpack- on rugged, steep terrain (up to 47% incline). Now he’s successfully completed all 460 miles- he actually completed 464 miles (747 km)!

Click to read about his experiences Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, and Week 4. At the start of week 5, Samir had 66 miles to complete.

On Thursday, June 30th, he set out to complete his last 31 miles and braved the moody mountain weather- it was raining and a chilly 56 degrees when he set off. He completed 17.2 miles on “Lost Man’s Trail” and then walked from the trailhead along the road on Independence Pass into Aspen, CO for another 18 miles! His total mileage for his final hike came out to 35.2 miles over 8 hours and 20 minutes. He finally was able to reach his finish line in downtown Aspen at 8:40 p.m. Talk about finishing with a bang (and 4 days before his birthday deadline)!

Here is the Week 5 mileage tally:

Monday: 17.2 miles
Tuesday: 18 miles
Wednesday: Rest day
Thursday: 17.2 miles + 18 miles

Total for the week: 70.4 miles
