USA 21 June: Millington, OR - Florence, OR

For many of the runners, the day began -- as it always does for Bill and Judy -- with a 4am weight training session.

The Pearl's have an excellent gym set up in their barn. Several members came for the morning workout.

Our gracious hosts, Bill and Judy Pearl then treated the whole team to a sumptuous breakfast at the local diner.

We enjoyed their company, hospitality and their friendship immensely - they are truly inspiring. A very big thank you and we all look forward to see you again in the near future.

The big breakfast set us up for the long 185 mile drive back onto our route, where we started 10 miles outside Coos Bay.

In Coos Bay we visited the Boys & Girls Club of SW Oregon. There we met Erica Rush (Reporter / Anchor) for KCBY 11 News who filmed the ceremony and interviewed Atulya, our team captain.

There were about 30 children at the Club and it was the start of their summer vacation. They were full of energy and enthusiastic.

One boy all on his own was able to guess the countries of our runners. They asked some interesting questions.

One girl name Riley put up her hand and said, “I don’t have a question, but I have something to tell you. I’m the great, great, great, great, great cousin of the Queen of England”. Well, it’s not often the team is in the presence of royalty.

All the children ran with the torch and made a wish for harmony.

Angie Reiber, the co-coordinator of the Club received the torch and our certificate of appreciation.

After the ceremony the run continued up the coast to Florence. We ran over many impressive bridges spanning lagoons and rivers.

We stopped in at the Florence Boys and Girls Club and had a chance to speak with the children and answer lots of questions.

Then we got to go outside and have some fun running with the torch.

It was really exciting to run with these youngsters.

The group got together to give us a big send off.

Tiffany very graciously received our certificate of appreciation on behalf of the Boys and Girls Club.

Later on Vladimir found a naval hat and tried it on for sized.

Yet another stunning Oregon Sunset at the...

...Driftwood Shores Resort and Conference Center.

Absolutlely stunning! We loved staying here. Right on the beach with more amenities than we could hope for!
