..Slowly the distance is getting a bit higher and todays run, albeit very hilly, was easy on the legs and I enjoyed it all the way :-)
Unfortunately on the other hand the non-running challenges keep piling up. At present Im wondering how world run one could be that easy ;-) (and to describe the running straight across Siberia between two winters as "easy" .. is far fetched. But ! It is a Holiday compared w batteling my way by running through Africa).
Yesterday the run went smooth, however when driving to buy supplies afterwards, our car was hit in the hectic traffic. Rest of the day spent at the policestation trying to avoid jail or penalty (we used my little bacl. degree in law to its full extent ;-)
Next challenge of the day: My wr. phone number ( 45 306 376 88) got closed. Since then I cant send or recieve sms/txt and thus the next update of the website may first be w a Kenyan simcard in ca. 1 weeks time.
Part of that challenge: using the sim. in ethiopia has been expensive to the extent that I may need to sell the supplycar in Nairobi and try to continue without. Not likely to be possible.
- Yes, the Running is by far the easiest part. And that part I still ENJOY :-)
