Total at end of Nicaragua = 13,078.6km. for 297 road days.

Oct. 30th 2011. From km 111 in Rivas to km 145.8 in Puenas Blancas at the Nicaraguan/Costa Rican border. Today 34.8km run. Steady start but legs a bit tired after last nights hard effort. Recovered well in last hour. I ran to the border and returned to Rivas for the night. Nicaragua has been conquered! Tomorrow morning I will return to the border and start running across my 9th country.

Oct. 29th 2011. From yesterdas finish as below to Rivas at km marker 45 to km 111 just past the Chow Mein Chinese restaurant in Rivas. Today 66km run and that chalked up the 13,000km :)

  I started very late in the morning due to a commute from Managua to new base in Rivas and then the return to the start location in Jinotepe.  Finished very late in the evening in the dark, torrential rain and heavy traffic with little or no hard shoulder. One of my best days distance-wise but one I disliked due to the difficulties.

Oct. 28th 2011. West of Managua km 6.5 on west/east route ca 02 to Jinotepe at sign ” Managua 45km “  This is on the south Ca 02 route.Today 45.8km as I routed my way around the city. Commute back to Managua. Great days work clearing this place, enough said! Lots of stops at start, it took me a while to get goin but finished running hard and strong. Ran without pack today as good bus service for commuting. Spot still not working. I am trying to find a solution to this.

Oct. 27th From km 41 to km 6.5 in Managua City, Capital of Nicaragua. Today 34.5km. Very hot but not as bad as yesterday. Strong today. Finished early today as I plan to run from the hotel here (hopefully early!)  and commute back

OcT. 26th From km 91 Leon to km 41 = 50km.  Very, very hot day, many stops, shattered at end of the day.

One year on the road today, Tuesday 12,847.5km for 292 road days. Circa 8,000 miles.

The dream lives on. I am as happy as ever.

Thank you all for your great messages of support and best wishes.

Many thanks also to my sponsors The North Pole Marathon, Great Outdoors, Chariot Carriers and DryMax socks.

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...
