- A huge help to have a crew/team again!!
I am sure that the 3 rest day in Hastings did a lot in getting me fresh,
have the positive support of a crew and not having to push the stroller
make a big difference. It feels almost as if I had forgotten how joyful
it can be to run - the last 2 months being more struggle than anything
Hopefully there will be a chance to get help from teams on the last long
stretch out to New York City; pushing the stroller there doesn?t seem very
tempting or even doable at present.
But as mentioned: today was enjoyable :-) We took time to look at the
green farm fields and beautiful hilly landscape when I passed by at the
water stations every 2-3 miles and in general had a pleasant day. Even the
weather was much less humid than usual for the last weeks.
At the finish in Ellsworth we found a nice motel - The David Motel - who
was helpful in letting me use their internet to post the report. At
present I don?t have signal for the mobile phone, so it might take a while
before I can upload or send the next reports.
