The map shows the position of which the pictures for the day are taken (if any). The start and finish markers are placed at the first and last valid registered position. This is not nessesary the actual start and finish position, if GSM or GPS signals was not available.
Distance today: 38.0 km (Accumulated: 34280.0 km)
Elapsed time: 03:31:30
Start 12:00, 15c, almost clear & light wind, at Pennrose Ave./George C. Platt Memorial Bridge, Philadelphia. Finish 16:27pm., 17c & same, at green mile-marker "34" on hwy. 73.
A very diverse stage, running through Philadelphia from its heavy industrial areas, waste dumps under the highways - to the centre with vibrant naighbourhoods.
Its been a tough run along the highways of the East Coast and its no secret that I do dream of Canada very often now. But that doesnt mean that its without its thrills to within a few hours running pass from one extreme of big city life to the other !
PS: For those with a keen eye for irony there is a little surprising/? detail in the slideshow from this stage ;-)
