Run Across Haiti: Final Run from Owen

Hear that?  Yep, that’s a bell tolling…AC/DC style.  It’s Death March day.  Death March.  Today is 56 miles.  Not kilometers.  Miles.  It also just so happens to be my birthday.  More on that in a minute.  We all turned in early, but none of us really slept.  I think I got a semi-solid 90 minutes before my alarm went off at 10:30…PM.  We decided

Run Across Haiti: Final Run from Viv

I was walking to our office this morning thinking how strange it is that we just ran across an entire country last week. Where am I? Did the run really happen? I spent the walk reflecting on every piece of the run and thought about what made the seemingly impossible possible. It took a village. For every runner who thought there was no way

Run Across Haiti: Final Run from Josh

Sunday’s run was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. After Saturday’s lasagna dinner, we all went to sleep around8pm, my alarm went off less then 3 hours later. By 11:30pm I had my blisters taped up, headlamp on, and a few cups of black coffee in my system. We were off and running before 1am. The next 12 hours were spent trekking 56 miles until we reached the ocean in Jacmel.This

Run Across Haiti: Final Run from Sean

I wasn’t sure about running on the last day. I was feeling sick and I never thought there was any way possible I could do the whole 56 miles. I decided to just go ahead and try it to see what happened. We planned to start late Saturday night or early Sunday morning. We got started around 1:00 AM on Sunday. It felt good running as a group just

Run Across Haiti: Day 7 from Josh

Our final day of running is quickly approaching and in less then six hours, Team Tassy will depart at midnight for a 56 mile run from Port Au Price to Jacmel. I’m hoping to get a couple hours of sleep before departing, but it’s hard to sit still knowing what lies only a few hours in the future. We got an early start the next morning

Run Across Haiti: Day 7 from Tassy

We are finally in Port-Au-Prince, which means that we have one more left to finish the race. Tomorrow will be a rest day and then we are going to start running on Sunday at 12am. We will be going from Port-Au-Prince to Jacmel, about 56 miles. It is going to be pretty interesting. God is with us, we have a strong support crew, we have a plan,

Run Across Haiti: Day 6 from Dr. Steven

I signed up last minute with Team Tassy two weeks ago to be their team physician.  Watching the runners run through the heat in the often busy streets of Haiti has been inspirational to me.  Yesterday morning, I woke up and decided not only to quit smoking, but to also run a half marathon with the runners.  Brave?  Perhaps.  Crazy?  Most likely.  To me, running is

Run Across Haiti: Day 7 from Kelsey

One Day to GoToday we arrived back in Port Au Prince.“Can you believe you ran back here from Cap Haitien?!?” Taylor asked.I can because I’m here. I can’t because that seems ridiculous. Even though I have run every day since last week when we drove up to Cap to get here.We are one day away. Getting here has been tough and finishing will not
