EJ has finished the 6th Marathon of his 7 on 7 marathons to complete for the year 2016. This time he ran on the South American continent, at the Guayaquil Half Marathon in Ecuador.
After running the race, EJ posted the following:
Finished my Guayaquil Half Marathon! In about 2 1/2 hours! Faster than I thought I would be. I had two great guides thanks to Diego Maruri! I had 3 hours of sleep. Two bum knees which didn’t bug me too bad. I haven’t run since Sydney two weeks ago. I have plantar fasciitis which did bug me some. Plus my back was hurting me last night which worried me. But I got to run with NO BLINDFOLD, which is very rare. But half the race was before sunrise and the rest was very cloudy. Anyway I did it, and I have one more to go!
I’m running for charity please look at the list of charities I’m supporting. They need your help.thanks.
