RUNS EUROPE

On May 22 2009 I will begin a run from Amsterdam to Athens. The run will carry me over 2,300 miles through 7 countries and will take about 4 months to complete. I will be completely unsupported, carrying only the bare necessities on my back. I will average almost 20 miles per day.
Sounds crazy right? Well, add to that no reservations and no money for lodging and you’ve got...one sweet adventure. In order to meet new people, I’m nixing the hotel and hoping that I can depend on hospitality as frequently as possible.
Every day I’m going to wake up, put on my gear, and run for a few hours. When I get to the next town, I’ll have the whole day to: recuperate / find food / practice my French, German, and Italian (or pick up some Dutch or Greek) / discover something new / see some architecture / make new friends / wash up / update my log / find somewhere to sleep / do whatever else comes up. Then I’ll go to sleep, and the next day I’ll wake up and do it again...for four months.
This website is devoted to this trip: to allowing my friends and family to follow my run and to spreading the word to anyone who might want to help make this dream become reality.
