A quite long stage - the longest pushing the Cougar stroller actually (I
did a 93km stage near Canberra in Australia, but had crew there so I
"only" had to run, not also push 38-40kg in front of me).
Some of the steep coastal climbs of the Highway made it a good fight
keeping every step a run :-) Also I enjoyed the company of Californian
ultra runner Andy Hergert the last half of the stage.
He and his wife even had arranged an excellent hotel for me after the
- Which made a very pleasant surprise after 80 "mountain run kilometres"
of pushing the stroller. A bit tired there, I have to admit ;-)
By the way the road along this beautiful and rugged part of the Pacific
Coast was first completed in 1938; after 18 years of hard work excavating
and clearing the path through the mountain ranges.
