Everything revolves around tomorrow. Everything revolves around tomorrow. 18 miles left. One short day's run.

I am so lucky to have been able to do this run. I have met incredible people that I would've never has the opportunity to meet. I have seen things that I would have never seen otherwise. Seeing the country at 6 miles an hour was the perfect speed. A cruise control running trip to see the country and tell people about kids with arthritis. I'm not done yet. I'm close, but not yet. People are congratulating me about finishing. While I do appreciate it, I haven't done it yet.

People have helped me in so many ways I can't even name everyone or everything people have done. Thank you everyone for supporting me and following this blog and sending encouraging me. Your words have helped me get this far.

Last night my dad and aunt flew in and I enjoyed spending today with them walking around Savannah and figuring out specifics for tomorow.

Good day. Nice people.

  2. Awesome!!! Enjoy your last run, take time to breathe it all in...especially the smell of the paper mill in the morning!

  3. Patrick - make this last day your best day yet!!

  4. You have done a great job. From one solo transcontinental runner to another... Congratulations! Enjoy those final miles. You'll never forget them!


  5. I´m so glad that you did it!
    I´m in the beginning of my second coast to coast run and perhaps I also will finish in Tybee Island.
