Running company again :-))
After meeting up with Reino yesterday at the end of the daily stage (and re-supplying on equiptment; gps-tracking should be up and functioning from tomorrow !!)it was not time to share the run. From the first step there was a definate change - the long long time of running alone broken by the knowledge that there is company on the road the next 3 weeks towards the finish up at New Foundland.
Those who has followed world run 2 since its start will recognize this modest and silent runner:
Reino has already run with me above the Arctic Circle in Finland near the beginning of the run, 1500km in Mid.- and Southern Mozambique in Africa, 1000km through Northern Equador and into Colombia, and now on the last part of the canadian route.
In civil life Reino owns a large company with many papermills in Finland and abroad, but still he finds time and overview to at the same time exercise sports the Finland way'; 4 times crossing Finland North to South by ski, one time by means of a self-contstructed ski-skatebord/? and one time by running. Each time he has visited here in world run two it has been a pleasure with his good understanding of the run and its requirements, his wise pacing of himself and not least courage (to run through Colombia takes a bit of that ;-) but most of all his silent positive take on all occurences, large and small, during the days on the roads. And I am sure that is one of the reasons why he gets by very well no matter how different a culture he is joining the run in :-)
NB: A BIG THANKS FOR ALL THE MANY BIRTHDAY WISHES FROM AROUND THE WORLD YESTERDAY !!! I certaily made the deep tiredness now much more of a 'small issue'. And many good memories related to each person too !
