Russia 11 June: Tula - Moscow

Today we are aiming to reach Moscow - another day of hard running. We split up Into two teams - we are in the first team and drive ahead. From the car in front of us a boy is waving us. We wave in return. His mother turns around and waves us also. She smiles, we smile.

One of the amazing things about the Run is that in a short space of time you communicate so much with people you do not know at all. Although the meetings are often quite short often there is no need to say much.

When people's hearts are open and they hold the torch they feel something special. Something that unites without words, something from within that is vast and beautiful.

While running it happens often that people look at you and wave you out of the car and you look back and smile at them and they smile at you. We see each other only for a moment but this one moment can be so intense and give you so much joy, and also supply you with a lot of new enthusiasm and energy for running when you are tired.

We went off the main road; after some warm up and stretching exercises we ran through small villages towards Moscow. During a break a Lada with 3 young boys stopped near us and asked us whether we were a football team. (The girls were somewhere else at that moment). We told them about the Run and they were really amazed about the distances. They wanted our autographs and gave us chewing gums as a friendship gift!

As we reached Moscow dark clouds gathered above our heads, but the rain held off. A group of runners and city representatives from Moscow received us at the city border with karavay and salt.

They also sang Podmoskovnije Vechera for us, a beautiful and melodious song. We thanked them on our behalf for the reception and sang the World Harmony Run song. Than we passed the torch around and took some pictures together.

The wind strengthened in the meantime and the clouds above us became dark and heavy. The moment we jumped in the car and drove away a heavy downpour set in. But at that stage we were thinking about the warm shower at our accomodation!

However, Peter had already received a shower for free before….

Distance: 157km
