As my team back home in Denmark have informed me, I am now (slowly...)
approaching the next big mark on the km-scale; the 25 000km. I expect to
reach it in 2 or 3 days, most likely at the East part of Pittsburgh.
Tomorrow I will make a visit to Pittsburgh after the finish of the days run
to see if I can get the gps system and cell phone up and working again - it
would be nice to have on-line coverage at the 25 000km day :-)
On today?s stage I had good crewing by Connie Karras who has again joined
me. This time after a very long drive back from near Chicago where she
lives. A big help to the run and very much appreciated!!! Without help
from dedicated supporters like Connie I would have had little chance to
have come this far and should I reach London and complete the record its
indeed much their record!
The accommodation today is at the Amerihost Inn in Calcutta, which is a
near East Liverpool. Amerihost Inn has hosted me several times before and
has by now become almost an official accommodation of the run here in the
Mid West :-)
The cities name by the way reminds me of one on my good friends in
ultra running, Mr. Arun Bwardwai from India. He has for almost a decade now
been the leading ultra runner in India and with much spirit takes on
ultra running challenges throughout the world. I hope to share competitions
with him and many of my other running friends once this run is done - and
some quality recovery is taken care of !
