A nice flat stage today but I was pretty tired/heavy in the legs; at least
the first 2 hours of the run - from there on it picked up a bit :-)

I had good crewing by Joshua all stage which made it at least fairly easy
compared to the battle it would have been pushing the stroller in this
kind of humidity. Josh is preparing for the Chicago Marathon the 8.October
and judging from his performance on the group run yesterday from
Valparaiso to Hanna he should be up for a fast time in his debut marathon !

As you could read in the report from yesterday there has suddenly
developed severe problems with getting crew for the last hard stages of
the run - the way out to New York. But luckily many of the people I have
met on the way here in the US are doing a great job trying to find crews
for that last part. And as always Phill Essam from Australia is a strong
force in organizing everything. It means a lot to me with that kind of
support as its else is very easy to feel that the body is worn out facing
that last part - but I guess its very much of a mind-game: Had there been
half a year left I might not have felt it as bad, but knowing that this is
the last bit I probably as a reflex feel it as much harder than the rest.
Though I suspect that the other side of the 20 000km anyhow is a tuff
deal... ;-)
- Tomorrow Fireman Jim from Valparaiso, who was one of those that ran
yesterdays stage with me, will come out to crew. Much appreciated and
helps me getting a step further towards the goal !
