- Finally: a medium stage which was not a struggle to get through :-)
As yesterday it?s very clear what a relief it is to have a crew. Even a
stage with the stroller is harder beyond comparison to these 50km stages
with crew. Not because of the stroller itself, this is an excellent piece
equipment; but mainly because of the runner which is very very exhausted by
Today there was perhaps a bit too much time spend in "the pit" talking with
the crew, but it?s hard not to when there finally is a chance to make an
event out of the stage :-)
By the way again a scenic terrain along the route: lots of rolling hills,
small forests and a very twisty road with nice lookouts over the many
valleys and especially glimpses of the Mississippi River valley.
The country here is mostly farmlands with cattle or growing corn which
tall and green at the moment - not yet ripe with the yellow cones. The
cities I pass through are fairly small but as the case was with Minnesota
the people here in Wisconsin (the State that I have run in since early
yesterday) is almost always quite eager to help and have a pleasant
interest in what?s going on out at the road !
