An enjoyable short stage across the flat farmlands of Minnesota. The start
got delayed 1 1/2 hour though, as I had another puncture on the stroller
that I am running with. Luckily I had still one spare tire and tube left in

for the local newspaper who had just done an interview at the start point -
the run starting very slowly with more that an hour break to fix the
But besides that a quiet day on the road and another private offer of
at the finish in the small Georgetown. I am still amazed how
