- Another nice and easy stage with not too long distance to it. My local
contact for the road finding for this and the next stage is m. Erik Thorup
from the Danish Club in Melbourne - Who happen to know some good dusty
short-roads over the open fields which saved me a couple of kilometres.
Highly appreciated as every km can be felt at this stage of the run... :-)
As you can see from the pictures, I had a school-meeting on today?s stage
with some quite good questions and not the least: inspiring for me to
remember the spirit of sport as it is at that age!
What escaped the pictures was that I actually met Jesper Olsen. Not the
runner here, but the famous Jesper: The soccer player (or football as
it?s called back home in Europe) that used to play on the Danish national
team as well as for many of the major European clubs. Great positive
surprise there; really appreciate that he took time for it while setting
up his business down here in Australia!
- There should come some pictures on that in the gallery soon :-)
