Ultra-runner Karl Meltzer just set a world record on the Appalachian Trail, fueled by beer, candy and bacon.
His diet may not be traditional, but Karl Meltzer is an athlete after our own heart. The 48 year old ultra-runner just set a new record for running the Appalachian Trail: he covered 2,190 miles over 14 states in 45 days, 22 hours and 38 minutes.
Most surprisingly, The New York Times revealed Meltzer "capped each night with one or two beers and left from rest stops with rainbow-colored Spree candy, Three Musketeers chocolate bars and bacon in his pockets."
Mr. Meltzer, we have some socks you might like...
