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 and ran our 7th marathon to Port Au Prince. It was especially important to me that I felt strong as we completed our day at the Port Au Prince Olympic Training Center. I was confident that if I could finish that day feeling good, then I would be in good shape for our final day of 56 miles.
Many of Team Tassy’s families greeted us at the Port Au Prince finish line. It was incredible to meet the parents and children that Team Tassy has helped. The team had the opportunity to listen to the family’s stories and hear first hand how Team Tassy has changed these people’s lives. The tremendous impact Team Tassy has had continued to reveal itself over the next 24 hours. Today (Saturday), we toured an impressive local medical clinic that Team Tassy has helped to support and visited one of the Team’s families at their home. The house was built using styrofoam as an experiment and was completed at the end of 2014.
I am incredibly proud to see where my feet have carried me and am so thankful for the support of my teammates, family, and friends back home. As I enter the final stretch of this trip, please take a moment to support our Run Across Haiti on Crowdrise. All contributions will be matched up to $15,000.
