World Run I / Reports
Distance today: 35.0 km (Accumulated: 18306.0 km)
35km, 3:40:22h. Excl. food, water, road-finding, toilet etc. stops.
(Crew: Jurgen Ankenbrand, all stage).
Time GMT - 8 hours
+19c, almost clear and no wind at start.
21c, slight overcast and light wind at finish.
- Today was the last stage with Jurgen as crew before he must go back to
L.A. again. He has done an outstanding effort in supporting through the
first important days in this last continent of my run.
I have much enjoyed the humour of this "exiled German" as well as his crew
skills :-) It has been easy to tell that he has many years? experience of
international event crewing: recently Trans Europe Footrace (Lisabon to
Moscow) and Badwater (U.S.). Also we found out we have some mutual ultra
runner contacts "back home" - Stephan, Uli, Ingo and Robert :-)
As far as the running is concerned you may have noticed that I am running
along Highway 1 and not, as planned, Highway 101 on my route to San
Francisco. Runners are not allowed on this stretch of the 101 (Freeway),
but additionally the Highway 1 offer some truly spectacular ocean views!
However this will put me 1 or 2 days behind schedule - also due to
slightly shorter stages during these first 10days, mainly as I need to
adjust to day temperatures 20-30c lower than what I got used to through
the last 2500km in Australia.
By the way: as you can see from the pictures I got a much needed haircut
- Sheri at "Bella Gente" in San Luis Obispo kept her shop open extra time
so I could make it after the finish of the daily running (usually they
have closed by that time). Thanks Sheri :-)
