Marhabaan friends. My name is Kyle Jackson and I spent a semester as an international exchange student at American University of Sharjah (AUS) from Howard University in Washington D.C. In my last blog I shared my experience on how I decided to study abroad, the application and approval process and how I chose and ended up at the American University of Sharjah. Today I want to continue where we left off last time and share a little bit on the actual journey to the United Arab Emirates, to Sharjah and to American University of Sharjah.

Greetings from Ohio!

Many of you are aware that I was undertaking a three-month run across the United States of America, a very serious ultra-marathon run from Los Angeles to New York.

On August 2, 2017, after running 3,941 kms, my dream to run from Los Angeles and New York to raise awareness of a lung disease known as pulmonary fibrosis came to an abrupt halt. I had three weeks left to run 922 kms to New York. At 8:30 that Wednesday morning, I was deliberately hit by a pickup truck when running on the shoulder of Highway US 40 approximately 20 miles west of Columbus, Ohio.  The vehicle did not stop and the driver is yet to be found. The accident was widely covered in the media, such as on 10TV, the New Zealand Weekend Herald and ABC6.

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.
