I am looking to start in Georgia during the 3rd week of May and finish in late August. I am looking to cover around 25+ miles per day.

Are you an experienced hiker? Not trying to cast doubt, but 25 MPD out of the gate is exceptionally high mileage for 99% of the people who attempt a thru hike.

I have some experience hiking, but not too much. I am an experienced endurance athelete, having completed a Full distance "Ironman" triathlon. I would like to cover less milage, but I can't leave until after classes finish and I need to complete my thru hike before classes begin in August.
