Suneson keeps on running across USA through hailstorms

Björn Suneson was heavily hit by tornado-strength hailstorms on his coast-to-coast run across USA on Tuesday. He blogs daily and seems to live by his motto found at the end of his postings: Keep on running!

His only companion is a 3-wheel baby jogger, so he was in a bit of trouble. Luckily two guys who were chasing tornadoes allowed him to sit in their car until the worst was over. The photo above was taken by one of his saviors, Greg Guise, when they first spotted this crazybrave Swede on the road.

Mr. Suneson, a former economics journalist in his sixties, is now located in Valentine (Nebraska). He is an experienced runner and this will be his second crossing of America. He has already covered 2590 km, so he is about halfway through to Tybee Island (Georgia).

The video below shows his start from Westport (Washington) on April 8th.

Keep on running!
