I left Long Beach, California on May 25, 2011, when my "PEACE RUN 2011 Running Across America" started.
My final destination is Batttery Park, New York City, where I will see the Statue of Liberty 5,000km(3,125miles) away from Long Beach.
I Crossed the Mohave Desert, visited the Monument Valley, had a hard time suffering from herpes, went beyond the Wolf Creek Pass about 10,000 feet above sea level.
In the plain, an excessive heatwave warning had been issued almost everyday during the first week of August.
As soon as I arrrived in Wichita, Kansas, I decided to stop running.
It must have been a right choice. I flew back to LA to take a rest staying at my friend's place.
On August 17, I got out of the US and flew back to Japan.
After 3-week-rest at home, I came back to Wichita, Kansas again.
Now I'm getting ready for the 2nd Stage of my running journey to New York City.
I'm leaving on Monday 19th and get back on the road again!
