Finally a stage without cold rain for the main part :-)
3 miles before the finish I was met by a tall man who was running towards
me. I don?t see many runners on the roads over here so I hoped it might be
my contact from Olympia !
But so many things has gone wrong during the last weeks, that I didn?t want
to expect anything before I was certain; but for once it was just as
planned ! :-)
The runner turned out to be Brian Kessler from Olympia - experienced
long-distance and ultra runner who amongst much other has completed two
States 100mile races (not exactly the easiest 100miler to do.. !) and a
Swiss Alpine (78km).
Brian and his wife Carma will accompany me and offers accommodation for
the next 4 days. Something which really lifts my spirits at a moment of the
run where I am hanging on by the last resources - struggling with
several near-injuries due to the cold rain and pushing the heavy stroller
trying to regain some kilos after a few days with fever !
