The rugged terrain and significant elevation changes of the trail made this a particularly daunting run, even for Lewis. It ended up taking him about 49 days and 14 hours, according to the Facebook post. That's still pretty fast, likely putting him in the top 10 times for completing the trail.
"When I first looked at this on a map in terms of elevation climb, it made my hands get a little sweaty," Lewis said before starting the trail. "I haven't felt that nervous since maybe the first time I did Badwater (an ultramarathon)."
