Episode Notes

This interviewee was suggested by long term listener Keith Foskett who met Philip on a mountain one day while hiking in the states.

His story and the target he set himself is pretty incredible and shows a massive amount of dedication, sacrifice and commitment to achieve it.

Philip J. Carcia is a hiker, runner, and media creator who has logged over 15,000 miles on some of the most iconic trail networks in North America. Growing up in Massachusetts and cutting my teeth in New Hampshire, he fostered a deep love affair with the mountains of the Northeast at an early age. Almost two-decades later, that love continues to widen, and has become an anchor in both his personal and professional narrative.

This podcast relates to last year when he climbed all 48 4,000-footers in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, start to finish, in every month, for 12 consecutive months, completing one of the most grueling and obscure peak-bagging projects in the United States - the Single Year Grid.
