Day 50

Todays Miles: 30.3
Total Trip Miles: 1,243.6
43 running days

Today was a day I could no more than describe as sand and hills.

The sights all day were of sand and more sand. The kind of sand that sits on the ground and flys in your eyes as the wing blows.

The hills of the day were many. I spent all day going up and mile or two and down a mile or two. Repeated that all day. By the end of the day I got a good leg workout!

Food today was scarce. I didn’t go through a single village or pass a single shack. I ate a peanut butter sandwich. Tomorrow I will stop my gps device on the highway and head 4 miles towards the ocean to a little village in hopes of food. Just somewhere that accepts MasterCard or actually has food to bring with me. They do have a small hotel with a little restaurant. So at the least I can get one meal but I’d really like to find a place to load up on some more food.

I’ll keep everyone updated on how the food search goes. It wouldn’t even be a problem if I would have been allowed to bring my emergency food box.

I’m not a music guy when running but I love to read. The last two days I have listen to two different books and it wasn’t to bad. So on long days with busy traffic and no nature I’ll probably listen to books. If anyone has any recommendations let me know. (I’ve read a ton of books in life and I don’t mind a book twice so anything works)

To my vets:

I’m going to be doing a Facebook live video for all of you soon! Keep any eye out for it!


  1. Keep going Dustin!! We dont know how you do it but you are an inspiration to us all!! Looking forward to your next live!

  2. Oh man... if you've never read Tom Clancy, the listening to his books are much better. The beginning of his books take time to build. But it's hard stopping when it gets good!
    I'm currently on book 8 of the Left Behind series. Makes you think.
    God bless brother!

    1. I just listened to Opt Center and The Hunt For Res October by Clancy!
      I agree it’s a slow build, but once it gets going you don’t want to stop.

  3. I have been following you since your start and think about your journey often. Today, while on vacation, my 9y old asked me what I was reading. I told him your story, what you were doing tonight, and how I hoped you were able to stay strong through the night and during your next leg. He stopped and said let’s pray. We did. I hope they find their way to you.

  4. You're doing an amazing job! Not only have you GOT THIS but GOD'S GOT THIS! Praying for you everyday, every step. Dawn C.
