USA 15 July: Wanblee, SD - Colome, SD

As we run through America we not only cross states but also time zones. Today we moved from Mountain Time to Central Time (that is, we lost a hour as we had to put our clocks forward).

As we ran in the clear blue skies we saw many mule deer cross the road in front of us. The landscape here is one of rolling hills and is very lush and green.

We passed many horses and cattle grazing in the fields, but other than that we just had the breeze for company and what has been common on the roadside over the last few days – hundreds of locusts. The road is covered with them and as you run, hundreds of them fly before you in all directions. Some you can hear pinging off the torch!

As we ran through the rolling countryside now and then a car would drive alongside and take photos of the runner and to inquire what we were doing.

It seemed in no time we arrived at our final destination – the town of Winner. The Warrior Inn kindly gave the team complimentary rooms yet again. The owners and some of their friends were so enthusiastic to meet us all. Thank you very much for supporting us over the years, it means a lot to us.

Their children were very happy to hold the torch. Young Alison had lots of speed, faster than Yvonne (with torch) and Jagadhata.

Dalton carried the torch high overhead with his sister Alison, their sister Jade (not photographed) was also very kind and gave me a flower.

We also met up with the local reporter of the weekly newspaper who was eager to take many photographs and gain as much insight into the run as possible.

Sweet Dreams.
