AUS Professor Dr. Nick Ashill running from Los Angeles to New York

On Sunday, May 14, I started off in front of Santa Monica Pier in Los Angles. I have now been running for over a month and on Wednesday, June 14, exactly a month after I started my run, I arrived in Albuquerque, New Mexico. So far I have run 1,484 km. I have run through California and Arizona, and I am about a third through New Mexico.

Blisters continue to be a problem, but this is to be expected given I need to average 50 km per day. So far I am managing to maintain this figure. My body is tired, and I am taking each day as it comes. The run is not about the 5,400 km distance. It is about 108 runs of 50 km each.

With less than a week before I leave for America, I am making final adjustments to training, logistics and chasing potential sponsors. The realization of what lies ahead of me has not yet hit home. Certainly nerves are starting to show and I am eager to get the first day of running behind me. 

If you are not yet aware of this, my next big thing, well, I am doing this very serious ultra-marathon run from Los Angeles to New York in order to inspire people to dream big as well as to help families suffering from pulmonary fibrosis.
