[Trempleauteau; green city sign on Hwy. 35: "Trempleauteau"].
39km, 3:32:41h. Excl. food, water, road-finding, toilet etc. stops
Time GMT - 7 hours
+24c, half overcast and light wind at start.
33c and same at finish.
- Another good stage. The legs are beginning to pick up their strength
again; though slower than I'd like!
Our finish city, Trempleauteau, was a very pleasant experience :-) !
We were met by Mr. Russ Stevens who will crew for me tomorrow even before
finish. I quickly came to understand that he had been preparing quite a
lot...: There were a free place to stay at an excellent Bed & Breakfast
near the river side; tickets for a concert an the evening and a meal at the
restaurant !! Much appreciated :-)
But also it was my last day with Debbie Jones as my crew - at least until
we meet again nearer to Chicago. She has done an amazing job getting my
spirit back after the hard stages I had had with humidity, heat and pushing
the stroller about a week and further back. She has a lot of the credit for
that I was able to continue the run at a time where it began to look like
there wasn?t more energy left. Besides good crewing (transporting the 30kg
of equipment from start to finish and stopping and waiting with
water/sports drink every 2 miles) she has been a really fun company - which
this far into the run means that the daily stages go by much much easier
than the "...ok, 10minutes done now... 20minutes done... 3 hours left..."
routine when I am running alone :-)
Thanks a lot Debbie for that invaluable help!!!!
