... The car returned in the morning, tyre even flatter than before; a 40km drive, some expenses. Not too good.
Cant say things are lucky at the moment - but thats part of what makes it a challenge ;-)
One could say that the Running challenge would be enough in itself (especially if I and not the argentinian authorities had my running shoes, so I could do some decent distances ;-)
But thats one of the differences between running training km or competetion at home vs. the expedition runs - you can never predict where the next challenge will come from. Only prepare your physique & soul for it and appreciate the support from friends, runners, sponsors and people like the very encouraging Peruvian gentleman I met yesterday: providing valuable detail knowledge of the route ahead :-)
