First day with runner company in USA !
Today was the first stage where I had company by local runners here in USA. Very enjoyable !! Andrei up from Miami drowe down to mile-maker 70 and ran with me the 30miles in perfect weather. A bit faster pace than usually but its always nice with some change :-)
After the run I was lucky to have excellent accomodation at the farm of Ann and Harry in Homestead further up North on the route. When beeing on the road and 'on the run' for several years and across four continents it means a lot - both with the enjoyable company during todays run, but equally to have a little bit of feeling at home !! There is a big difference between staying in 100' different hotelrooms... and feeling cozy, "at home" and taken care of like I do here at Harry & Ann's place :-) A huge THANK YOU for their hospitality as well as the superb organisation of the backup from the Florida runners community that apparently has prepared the road ahead of me all the way into the next state.
I am Amazed !!
