A long run !
On today?s rainy stage from Moorhead out on the Highway 10 towards
Minneapolis I was quite tired as usually on this last part of the total
run, but there was a special motivation today: I would make it just past
the 23 000km mark.
As far as I and my supporters have researched, the longest documented run
has been a 20 000km run in Australia, by Gary Parsons and a 23 000km run by
Istvan Sipfos. So... it looks like another mile-stone has been passed as
the run continues across the flat mid-USA.
At finish I was picked up by Rachel from Fargo who has found accommodation
at her parents place. They all proved to be great company and I had an
enjoyable evening in their house right at the lakeside. Rachel is a
halfmarathonner who is exploring the long-distance running with great
and heading for a marathon next year - interesting to share thought on
training and running and feel some of the inspiration that I remember from
when I started out many years ago... (Little did I know then, that I would
take on a thing like World Run or run 23 000km 20 years later; but it has
been very joyful all the way :-)
