Another very enjoyable stage :-)
Again I had company/crew by several runners and we had a great time pacing
(well ok; slowly running...) through the autumn landscape here in
I am on a daily level amazed by the level of support I have got here on the
last half of my American part of the run. Every single day there has been
people turning out to help crew for me and even run along parts of the
stages. THANKS folks!!!!
What makes it even more remarkable is that I dont find it much impressive
what I am capable of doing by now. 25km pr. day can hardly be described as
a lot and certainly its "childs play" for seasoned ultra runners. But they
luckily seem more enthusiastic about it than I - who whish that I could
still keep the 50km/day average that seemed no big problem to do the first
1, 5 year of the run. But I guess the 25 000km takes it toll on the legs no
matter if I want to accept it or not.. :-)
At present I am also busy planning the last stage of the total run:
Ireland and the U.K.
Well; more correctly it would be to say that its Tony Mangan from Ireland,
Siri Terjesen from the U.S. and the ever working Mr. Phil Essam from
Australia who is busy adjusting the last bits of the schedule to what last
bits is left of me ;-) I look much forward to that part of the run -
though it seems that I will have another challenge on my hands in Ireland:
pubs and a good old-fashioned Irish cross country race near Dublin to deal
My expected finish in Greenwich, London is by now Saturday the 29. October,
but it will first be definite once I reach New York and can take a look at
some detailed maps of the landscape ahead.
- All the above on Highway 30.
