After the two very enjoyable stages with Karla as crew and company, one of
my other much cherished crews came out to help.
Debbie from Chicago who has already been crewing for me for about 10 days
back in Wisconsin has driven out from Chicago to help me across Illinois,
though it will be a long stretch for her !
At this stage of the run that is a very very appreciated help as I know
myself well enough to know that if I was to push the stroller alone the
last about 1000miles out to New York there would be little chance that I
would be able to make it ! There is a BIG difference between pushing 35kg
of equipment with a few months of 50km-a-day running in the legs -
compared to now with 24 000km & 1.7 years in the legs. By now I can do that
that for a week or two, then there isn?t more energy left. So: A HUGE
THANKS TO THOSE THAT COMES OUT TO HELP ME!!!
If I make it to London and complete this first lap around the world, then
much of the honour belongs to you :-)
