Martin Way to finish>.
(Crew: Karen Hagenborg all stage and runner company by Brian Kessler last
40km, 4:08:55h. . Excl. food, water, road-finding, toilet etc. stops
Time GMT - 8 hours
+15c, rain and light wind at start.
16c, overcast and med. wind at finish.
A very rainy and cold stage where I struggled a bit with the injury in the
hamstring in back of the upper right leg; BUT having another day of
support by Karen, Carma and Brian AND rounding the 20 000km mark made up
for all the struggling lately :-))
When I get time for it I will send an overall report to the ultra running
news sites of two of my friends, Lars from Norway (www.kondis.no/ultra)
and Stephan of Germany (www.steppenhahn.de); who patiently has covered the
run all the way :-)
It will mainly be the impressions and general observations and thoughts of
these first 20 000km, 1,2 year and 3 continents into the run.
Also big thanks to all those who has helped on the run so far; in various
countries, languages and weather since London. Without your help little of
the 20t. km would have been possible, so they are also a tribute to you !
PS: On one of the pictures attached to this report you can see Carma,
Karen and Brian (setting up the 18mile supply station :-) - Image(071).jpg

Distance today: 0.0 km (Accumulated: 20075.0 km)
10 minutes ago I passed the
20 000km in total :-)
I first checked the total amount yesterday evening and feared I might have
missed it, but at the finish yesterday I had 19 994km !
It has been some hard weeks lately and I had actually doubts that I would
get to see this side of the 20 thousand! But with good help from
supporters - at the moment Carma, Brian and Karen from Olympia - the body
and motivation kept the run going even when it seemed a hopeless struggle
PS: I will upload the reports from the last 3 days this evening and
probably send the ordinary report for today (start and finish time etc.)
tomorrow. There will be some celebrating to do after the run today.. ! -
