Run Across Haiti: Day 4 from Viv

If you’re running down a highway in the middle of nowhere and you see a moto with keys in it and not a soul in plain sight, what would you do? Well…I kept running…it’s Day 4 of our run and I finally had a chance to jump in. I’ve been battling a strained calf muscle followed by a fever so finally getting on a

Run Across Haiti: Day 4 from Ian

Hey everybody! First this is HARD.  Harder than last year.  In addition to being more miles, it is WAY hotter. easily 95, and 20 of the four days would be top five toughest road races in the US, easily.  Besides trying to figure out how to make it through 34 miles today (We’ve done 100 so far), the other 5 runners and I work

Run Across Haiti: Day 4 from Tassy

Every single day has been a great experience itself. We ran 35 miles, which put us up to 96 out of 230 miles. By tomorrow we will be half way to finish this journey. We are all having a blast, although it is very hot. Furthermore, we are enjoying some good Haitian food. Gosh, I love Haitian food I keep thinking of Port-Au-Prince because

Run Across Haiti: Day 4 from Owen

The crew first broke into a light jog this morning at 5:30am.  The streets of Gonaives were slightly less bustling than the night before, but bustling none the less.  Headlamps deployed, we trotted toward the horizon, working out the kinks from yesterday’s miles.  As we left town, we saw the sun rise behind the mountain tops at our immediate 12 o’clock.  With exactly zero

Run Across Haiti: Day 4 from Josh

It feels incredible to have today’s run behind us. This 34 mile run was one of the more intimidating legs of the trip. 96 miles in four days is the most I’ve ever run.  We started the day early with our headlamps running through dawn until the sun rose over the mountains. The temperature continued to creep up as we logged our miles. Even

Run Across Haiti: Day 4 from Kelsey

I woke up this morning and thought that there was no way I would run 34 miles today. A head cold I’ve been fighting finally showed up in full force, I was still worn out from the sun the day before, and the thought of running a distance longer than a marathon seemed ridiculous.  We took off while it was still dark, and it

Run Across Haiti: Day 3 from Owen

Day 3…whew!  Today was a scorcher.  Like SCORCHER.  Strapped a couple of extra Gatorade mixes to the old pack, just in case.  Tassy and I paced together a fair amount today which was super fun.  He provided incredibly interesting commentary and context to all of the sights and sounds that were overwhelming my senses.  We ran through tons of road construction, which put an

Run Across Haiti: Day 2 from Taylor

Storytelling often starts with admitting that you don’t know the story. It’s something that has a life of it’s own, and rather than being transcribed, it’s something to observe and uncover, day by day. When I first was invited by Andrew to join him as his film assistant, and to volunteer as a photographer for the trip, I worried that I didn’t understand enough

Run Across Haiti: Day 3 from Josh

Today’s run was hot. The kind of hot that would have been hard to imagine back in sub-zero NYC last week. My legs were pretty heavy at the start, but after the first mile things started to pick up. The landscape was a mixture of lime-rock queries, dessert, and bustling towns. The towns were the most jarring thing I’ve experienced since arriving in Haiti.
