Today I had a surprise meeting on the road: Brian Kessler from Olympia in
Oregon. He and his wife Karma hosted me and crewed for me when I was
running my way up the coast in the cold rain towards Vancouver and the
They had coincidently a family gathering in Ohio this weekend so he decided
to drive out on Highway 30 and see if he could find me. Luckily he did, and
we ran the main part of the stage together. Great to catch up with old
- Karma, who remembered my likeness for chocolate, had even baked some
homemade cookies and brought them along to the highway in Ohio !
An enjoyable run despite the usual tiredness.
Today also was the last day with Connie as my crew. She is bound for
Chicago where she has a 12hour race this weekend. It has been a pleasure
to have her as crew and I doubt that I will get a crew that perfectionist
again. Thanks a lot Connie and lots of luck in the 12hour!!!
