|Brandon and I are happy to report that we have passed the 1,000 mile mark!
This morning Eric Fryer was nice enough to drop us off where we were picked up yesterday--the McDonald's in Farmington, IL. That gave us a chance to start the day with a McDonald's deluxe breakfast--good fuel for the many miles ahead. This turned out to be a good plan as we went 35 miles before seeing a single store.
The weather was very hot again today; the "Strollometer" registered 118 degrees. Along the route, a nice lady stopped to ask us if we wanted some water. Her parents lived just a little ways down the road so we stopped there for apples and water. That was a nice break and greatly appreciated.
We were able to run a lot after the weather cooled down today, and we finished with a total of 37 miles.
Dinner tonight was at an ice cream shoppe in Roseville. Brandon set a new personal record by eating 10 hot dogs for dinner. He topped it off with a Boston Shake, which is a shake with a sundae on top.
Tonight we are setting up our tent on the lawn of the youth pastor of the Roseville Christian Church. We are grateful for youth pastor Jason's invitation to stay there.
Eric Fryer called my parents to tell them that the article about us was on the front page of the Bekin Times and that he was sending copies to my parents. Awesome!
We both miss the Sweetness Express, but we appreciate that we have a nice place to pitch our tent tonight.
Brandon had a bit of an accident a couple of days ago. He'll talk about that tomorrow during the interview on the Free Beer and Hot Wings Morning Show. Remember to listen to our interview Friday morning at 8:30 Eastern/7:30 Central.
That's it for tonight.
