Equator Run

If you die, I will bury you in the sandhills with all the other runners.
— Percy Cerutty

I will have an Equator Party when I finish running the circumference of the earth. I started at the Prime Meridian on September 25, 2010. The mileage is real even if the actual running takes place far from the equator.

Centerpiece: Wineglass Race Series in Corning, NY. I ran once in Iceland, around midnight with the sun still up, but that was in the city. I plan to run there again someday.

Local favorites:


All day he ran. He did not rest. He seemed made to run on forever.
His iron-like body ignored fatigue. And even after fatigue came,
his heritage of endurance braced him to endless endeavour,
and enabled him to drive his complaining body onward.
