Runner company last 20km.
20km before the finish we were, to our pleasant surprise, met by a large
group of young sportsmen & women from the region. Mostly cross-country
skiers and volleyball players, but all at an high level of fitness as they
without difficulty took on the last 20km of running :-)
- When we have that kind of company the many hours on the road goes in a
rush !! We enjoy that because after more than 9 months of running it is
honestly not every day that we are ecstatic about the thought of 4-8 hours
on the road... ;-)
Some of them spoke English, and in a mix of my (very) basic Russian and
their English we had some entertaining conversation, albeit I think we
understood just about 60% of what each other was talking about ;-))
Good news is that Alexander seams to be stable in his running now. We
really hope it holds to Vladivostock where we will have 3 days of rest as
the airplane to Toyama, Japan, first leaves on the 13.October. That should
give a chance to rest.
PS: The reports are posted with delay - as the mobile unit for reports to
the website is broken. We expect to reach Vladivostock the 10.October and
there have more extensive reports & comments!
