Very, very humid stage!
I am beginning to have some problems with the back/upper spine; quite
painful today.

Luckily there is a chance that a crew might come to help in a few days!

Also I am having help in trying to find crews by mr. Phil Essam from the
Australian Ultra runners Association, who has done great work for this run
right from the start :-)

Working with a crew mainly means that I don?t need to push the heavy
stroller while running but can have it transported and concentrate on the
running. Although the Cougar 1 stroller has proved an excellent tool for
the run its still important from time to time to relief the body from the
extra wear that pushing 35-40kg gives. And obviously the delight of having
some company during a nearly 2 year event means a lot too :-)

I had valuable support from my Russian crew - without whom I am certain I
wouldn?t have been able to (as the first) run the entire distance across
Russia with its very interesting but also very difficult challenges.

In itself running across N. America isn?t as difficult by a long shot, but
with 23 000km behind, every single km is a struggle now so crew-support is
very much appreciated on this last major stretch of the run!
