"Hesitation day" !
Today unfortunately was one of the few days where I doubt Im ready for what is ahead now.
- The stroller got packed, supplies set up; route checked & map ready, gps started. And stayed in the room.
Instead a 20km jog and rebuilding the confidence.
Not something Im proud of but I prefer truth for fancy explanations :-) This is what can happen with unceartainty ahead; wich running alone w. a babystroller into Sahara & Sudan to some extend is. And having the next known place to stay 200km up the road.
When new big sections of the run is due this can happen (in world run 1 the same moment of hesitation when running across the Russian border and having 7000km of Siberia ahead - wich later turned out to be wonderfull, by the way!).But as mentioned there can be many explanations, yet it basically comes down to facing the challenge no matter what :-)
Tomorrow its move-out time and50km run up the road in order to eventually reach Aswan for the weekly ferry to Wadi Halfa that is the only gate to Sudan from here. I've started on myanti-Cholera treatment yesterday and malaria pills starts in 1week.
What happens from then I dont know, but tomorrow its time to get closer to knowing!
