Being so far away from family and friends and all the support they provide has been one of the hardest psychological stresses of our running expedition. That is why receiving emails and words of encouragement are so precious. Hearing from the Prince of Wales made us spring in the air with joy! While words of support from the ultramarathon runner, Dean Karnazes, UK Chairman of WWF, Ed Smith and Kris Tompkins, CEO Conservación Patagonica, have made the long, hard, slog worthwhile! Thank you!
HRH Prince of Wales, “I am hugely impressed that you are undertaking such a gruelling and challenging 5,000 mile run for such a vitally important cause and I pray you will not have too many blisters, mosquito bites and other travel scars by the time you return from such an extraordinary marathon (…) I send you both my kindness good wishes and admiration”.
Dean Karnazes, “Best wishes on your incredible adventure. I am awe inspired and deeply impressed by what you are undertaking. I am sure there will be untold difficulties, but also unexpected delights. Please be safe and enjoy every step of the way! Charge on.”
