- The first stage without Peter since he joined me at Vancouver! He is
safely on his way back home (via Vancouver & our mutual friend Karl) and
will now discover the Rocky Mountains in quite another way; from the
window seat in the bus from Calgary to Vancouver :-)
He made a tremendous effort, becoming an ultra runner during the 900km we
ran together; fought his way through injuries and did the daily reports!!
Thanks for your time and enthusiasm Peter; it was certainly nice to have
company across the Rockies, and even more so by such a positive and
humorous person :-)
During today?s running I still had good company, though: Ben Kromand who
has looked after us the last days crewed excellently and from his bicycle
Joseph from South Korea kept my spirits up!!
As you can see from the pictures there was also a short TV-interview along
the way (about 1hour of talk & running..!) done by ?Global News? of
Calgary/Canada who had taken their time to come out on the roads to have a
closer look at what was going on and where this Danish ?prairie express?
was going ;-)
- And prairie it is; as from today the landscape has been almost totally
flat with green farmlands which in many ways remind me of the contours of
my home country, which lies about 5000km of running and a bit of flying
down the road?
