    Mr Mangan, My mother, Doris, read about you in the Nodaway County newspaper out of Maryville, Missouri. She lives in the Abiquiu, NM area which is just south of Antonita, CO about 70 miles. She would love to extend a welcome spot for your respite if you would be interested. She grew up in Missouri and is 88 years old. She would feed you a very good meal/s. So I am writing to extend this invitation to you. If interested I will give you more information.
    Sincerely,

  2. theworldjog Says:

    Hi Sharon. Thanks for contacting me. I am sorry Abiquiu, NM is not on my route. Best wishes and thanks to your mother for her kind offer. Tony.

    tony i recently drove through those mountains and i envy the view you have right now. theres something very humbling about those rocks, running through them must be a total reality check! youre a lucky guy!

  6. theworldjog Says:

    It sure is Roy! I am having the time of my life. They are difficult passes to run up. Today I ran most of the way up Monarch Pass without Nirvana and the mile times were 15 minute plus! But still a wonderful experience with incredible views :) I got to run without my faithful because a couple I stayed with last night offered to drive her up the pass and leave her at the Monarch mountain Lodge saving me 15 miles :) I got the great idea when I arrived to flash the magic letter and got a complimentary room tonight. It was a nice day,but windy. I will run the other 5 miles to the summit in the morning pushing Nirvana. It has just started snowing on Monarch! Tony

  7. Zak Says:

    Hey tony I met you on the west side of Monarch Pass at mile marker 197. Good luck!

About Tony

I have always considered myself to be an average runner. In school, I was even bullied for I was a sports wimp. Through hard work, dedication, perseverance, self-belief and a strong mind I succeeded in not only running around the world but breaking four ultra running world records during my competitive career. Having previously cycled around the world I didn't start running until I was almost 30. Then I had a dream of running around the world. For many reasons, I waited for over 20 years. One reason was to establish my pedigree as an endurance athlete. I started and finished my world run as the current World Record-Holder for 48 Hours Indoor Track 426 kilometres (265 miles), a record I have held since 2007. I also broke and still hold the World Record for 48 hours on a Treadmill 405 kilometres (251 miles) in 2008. When I retired from competition, more pleasing than any of my world, European or Irish records I had the respect of my fellow athletes from all over the world - in my opinion, sports greatest reward - an achievement I am most proud of. Then I finally put myself out to pasture, to live my ultimate dream to run around the world! This blog was written on the road while I struggled to find places to sleep and to recover from running an average of 43.3 kilometres or 27 miles per day for 1,165 road days. There were many nights I typed this blog on a smart phone, so fatigued my eyes closed. Many journalists and endurance athletes have referred to my world run as the most difficult endurance challenge ever attempted. During my expedition I rarely had any support vehicles, running mostly with a backpack. In the more desolate areas I pushed my gear, food and water in a cart which I called Nirvana, then I sent her on ahead to run with my backpack once again over altitudes of almost 5,000 metres in the Andes. I stayed in remote villages where many people had never seen a white person before. I literally met the most wonderful people of this world in their own backyard and share many of those amazing experiences in this blog. My run around the world took 4 years. There were no short cuts, I ran every single metre on the road while seeking out the most comprehensive route across 41 countries, 5 continents, I used 50 pair of running shoes and my final footstep of the run was exactly 50,000 kilometres, (almost 31,000 miles) I eventually finished this tongue in cheek named world jog where I started, at the finish line of my city marathon. I started my global run with the Dublin Marathon on October 25th 2010 and finished with the Dublin Marathon on October 27th 2014 at 3 05pm! Thank you for your support, I hope you can share my unique way of seeing the world, the ultimate endurance challenge! Read more...
