USA 29 May: Abiquiu, NM - Chromo, CO

The women's team started the day in Santa Fe's centre at local running club Santa Fe Striders' 32nd "Annual Runaround".

It was a 5k and 10k race with Girls on the Run - a nationwide movement to encourage girls - to run.

Our thanks to race organiser Jim Owens for giving us time on the PA to introduce the World Harmony Run to the assembling runners before the race start.

He tempted us to stay in Santa Fe and join them on a Sunday trail run, hard to resist when you see the surrounding countryside.

We had time to mix with the crowd before the race and lots of the girls and their families held the torch.

We couldn't run the race ourselves, because we had our miles to run on the road later, but we lined up at the start line to cheer them on.

Mayor David Cross was running too, and he slowed his start down by taking time to shake hands with us as he went by.

During one of Palash's runs Cynthia Valdez drove by and stopped to talk to her. She was really inspired by the Run and invited Palash to stop at her house nearby for refreshments. However, Palash was past Cynthia's house before she was ready. Cynthia was not to be deterred however...

She got back into her car with her dog Charlie and drove along the road until she saw Kalyanika, and stopped and gave her a piece of watermelon.

Then she drove ahead again to find our support van and presented us with a whole bowl of chopped watermelon, a bowl of salad and jar of dressing, and two big bottles of fresh water from her well.

So a big, big thank-you to Cynthia for being part of our support crew today!

As it happened, our other team were late bringing our lunch out to us today because they were getting something fixed on our RV, so Cynthia's watermelon really saved us.

The concern on Mark's face was evident as he realized we were going to be 30 minutes late to switch vehicles with our women's team.

Atulya didn't seem so concerned.

Just head north runners.

The boys took on the second half of today's miles.

Salil got a little help from Alex Ramirez on one of the many big climbs. He and his friends stopped to check us out and got inspired to run the torch up the hill. Thanks Alex!

Running in Colorado is exhilarating!

The air is fresh and the blue sky is endless.

After arriving in Pagosa Springs, many of us were treated to a relaxing soak in the natural springs at Springs Resort and Spa.

The girls got to camp along side the river at Pagosa Springs Riverside Campground...

... while the boys "had" to stay at the Hillside Inn. Thank you so much to Irek & Mary Przybylski for their generosity.
