A marathon and a restday :-)
Finally the legs are picking up strength again after 3-4 days with some tiredness. Yesterday a good 40km without too much struggeling and today a 42km that went nice and good ! Amongst the company were Hernan who is preparing for a 100mile race in Alaska in 3 weeks from now (!) and ran with me the entire marahton today; along with Matt Mahoney who set a blistering pace yesterday across the long bridges to and from Meritt Island and met up this morning with similar energy.
During the nearly 5hours of the relaxed run I had the chance to exchange view's on South America as Hernan has spend the first of his life in Argentina. I enjoyed re-living the nature and culture of that region, as well as getting a chance to discuss my impressions not only of South America but also some of the deserts I have had the thrill of running through in the world run 1 & 2. The background beeing that Hernan has done stage-racing in both the Sahara and the Gobi Desert - quite a resume to have !
But tomorrow... The monthly restday. Yes :-)
My supportdriver and I have found a place out on an island near Cape Canaveral a few walkingsteps from the Atlantic Ocean, so there should be pleanty of oppotunities to relax and sightsee tomorrow. Besides the logistics of the next months of running and road-finding, catching up with sponsors and checking technicalities reguarding the website, wich is one of the "duties" on a restday.
But before that - Big CONGRATULATIONS to the runners whom I ran with back in the Miami area last week and who today has completed their first marathon by taking part in the Miami Marathon :-)) Great Effort and... from now on it can only get Easier ! Your first marathon is the one of the hardest challenges you can do !
NB: The reports from the last two days will be uploaded shortly along with pictures and a few video-clips.
