Birmingham, AL - Guin, AL

Reported by Rupasi Young, Tanuja Konecna 80.0 mi

A special thanks to the Holiday Inn and Suites in Birmingham for hosting our team last night.

Virangini starts the running for today.

Carol saw us running by and drove to meet us. Her family is originally from Slovakia so she was excited to meet Tanuja, her 'Czech' neighbor.

Rupasi and Sweta were fortunate to meet Mayor Heather Hall from Parrish, AL. Mayor Hall was very interested in learning about the Peace Run and happy to share with us about Parrish. She sent us on our way with good wishes.

Thank you Mayor Hall.

Arpan made some new friends as we arrived to meet Mayor David O'Mary from Jasper.

Greetings from Mayor O'Mary to the team.

The City of Jasper has a beautiful mascot to adorn its newly renovated downtown.

The team runs out of Jasper, Nikolaus takes the lead for the afternoon running. They will cover 42 miles before dinner.

Peace and motorcycles...

What a great way to end the day.

Please send us a message, we would LOVE to hear from you.
