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

Run Across Haiti: Day 6 & 7 from Owen

Days 6 and 7…remember those turbo boosts in Mario Kart? Yeah…the last two days were kinda like that.  Day 6 was a short day (only 11ish miles). We decided to leave later in the day to allow for more rest time at Wahoo Bay.  I usually don’t eat much for breakfast on the days with early morning runs, so it was SO nice to

Run Across Haiti: Day 5 from Ian

Day 5 about to go into Day 6- Wahoo Bay to Arcahaie. Interesting things that happened in the last 24 hours: 1) Someone called me a giraffe in Kreyol. 2) Someone also told me unceremoniously to “f*&! off!” after I nearly ran into them on the road. I’m fairly certain he was telling the giraffe running next to me though. 3) I realized that I

Put more simply, things are starting to get a little weird.Which is why I found myself on the side of a mountain yesterday, empty road

Run Across Haiti: Day 5 from Owen

Day 5…a cool 22, right? In every other sense of the word, this may in fact be true, but environmentally speaking, it was anything but.  We got a late start today, partially from fatigue but mostly from the sheer amount of foot consultation that Dr. Steve administered.   Sidebar:  I hereby nominate Dr. Steven Yap for the Rockstar of the Week award (more R.O.W. nominations

Run Across Haiti: Day 5 from Tassy

I have start by saying that if you are thinking about doing the 2016 Run Across Haiti with us next year, you should definitely do it. We have not crossed the finish line yet, but I can already say that I am glad the run is happening. For awhile, the world has seen Haiti as a country that is just filled with poor people

Run across Haiti: Day 5 from Josh

I’m very happy to be writing this post from the picturesque shore’s of Wahoo Bay, Haiti. The sun has just set over the Caribbean Sea and we’ll soon be sitting down to another team dinner.
