World Run I / Reports
Distance today: 51.0 km (Accumulated: 3882.0 km)
Route Report: Gorokhovets - Pyra.

Alexander and Kazuka had a good running day in the sun, moving smoothly

bacteria" and the invading "Russian bacteria";
with the "home team" in some serious trouble.

European Footrace our average km/day should impress no ultrarunner!
(though our inrun participation in the Finland 12h race, with 130 & 140km,
is another matter...).
And I must consider these foot/stomach problems as part of the
acclimatization for Siberia.
And in that sense things are coming along just fine.
Worth mentioning is that we now are guests of the City Pyra where the
Sports Committee has given our team a stay in the citys luxery recreation
Very convenient for a quick recovery :-)
I struggle to remember if we in the first 3500km has had luxery like
