Michael Wilson, 28, who lives in Eliot, ME and works as a personal trainer in Portsmouth, NH is running 3,250 miles from the Santa Monica, CA pier to the Newburyport waterfront to raise money for Lucy’s Love Bus in Amesbury that serves children and adults with cancer. On Day 3 of his run here’s his field from the weekend reporting from San Bernardino- Hesperia/Victorville 34.3 miles 4,419 ft of elevation gain.
Tough day today although there were great views. Got an early start and the morning felt pretty smooth until my GPS rerouted me. Pushing my stroller up a mountain trail for 10 miles. I assumed that would be the worst of it only to find I had a flat tire and the next 7 miles was deep sand that was hard to push through. Ran on a flat for 10 miles. Temps were in the 80s. Mike, who has been close to Lucy’s Love Bus since he was a teenager, started his run with six local sponsors. In addition to the Portsmouth Planet Fitness, sponsors include True North Ale Co. in Ipswich, Wire By Ryan in Byfield, Marge Bar and The Juicery in Newburyport and Vincent Bianco Custom Catering in Peabody.
