The beat goes on

Northern Zambia is proving to be more challenging as there are fewer campsites, shops and gas stations along our route. School grounds have now become our campgrounds and have provided us with an inside picture of the Zambian education system and offered insight on how our fundraised money can be effectively used.
Thursday brought the company of Dr. Janice Mason and her daughter Ernette who have joined the team for two weeks. We are very glad to have both of these superstars helping us out and they have already proven to be extremely supportive on the bike, running, and in the massage tent.
On the whole, the running is going well, our bodies are well taken care of (a little stinky as showers are at an all time low) we are tired but we are getting it done. Thanks for always reading up on us.
By the end of today’s run we will be about 80km south west of Mpika.
