Hi John: You probably dont remember me but I am from Watersmeet MI and the Prez of UPRRC and have hosted many races including Billy Mills New World Run of which you ran when you were very young! Anyway, I am too old now, but always wanted to do something as you are doing! It is so great to see someone like you doing such a great thing! I pray in my Ojibwe language each day, and I will pray for your "indootimaagain, geenwenzh, bimaatiziiwin, mishkowozeewin gaye, which means Health strength and life! Will ask Gichi Manito for your safe return and protection. In our way you are a Warrior! Keep me posted in what you encounter. I just hope you will be safe and write a book about your wonderful experiences. Please send Al updates for us to put in our running paper!!!!
