Another mile-stone passed along the route. From here there should be
...only... 2000km to the finish back where I started on a green hill in
the South part of London: The Royal Greenwich Observatory & world
I first found out after the stage that I had just exactly hit the round
number, but enjoyed the stage never-the-less as I had good compagny along
the route by about 15 highschool & athletic club runners what ran with me
the first couple of miles. Later on I had for a long time the fotographer
of the Freeport newspaper following at taking pictures. I didnt at that
time understand what it was about, but later on a journalist came out and
did an interview at the place I was staying. Wich by the way was very
pleasant people living at the outskirts of city in a quiet rural area -
and with a lot of cats - wich I happen to like :-)
Again Debbie Jones who is crewing for me did an excellent job making sure
that all went fine: doing water-stops every 2-3 miles, keeping in contact
with our accomodation-family and enjoying the nature going by that the
same time ! Thanks for another good day of crewing :-)
