Major thanks to Rachel for buying us all Saturday breakfast coffees before we set forth from Peru, IL.
On Sunday we were joined by Julian Gordon, the Chicago based brother of Jeffrey, a London Marathon Everpresent. He ran with us for 10 miles and this really broke up the daily routine well. Thanks for the cake!
Today we crossed over into Indiana having run through the south Chicago suburbs which seemed so congested after recent weeks of rural country highways.
Chris stopped at a running shop just off Highway 6 in Schererville to buy new shoes and, once the story emerged of the run, Misty Chandos at Fleetfeet Sports was generous enough to donate a new pair of shoes to both of us for free. - an amazingly kind gesture with the old Nikes at last consigned to the bin.
Saw this off Highway 6 .......I love this country!!!
