"Hello Everyone. It's so awesome to meet you all and I wanted to say a huge hello. My Name is Jup Brown and I'm from New Zealand. I'm so stoked to be an ambassador for Point6.
You might be thinking what have I been up to well I'm in the middle of running across the US. I started the run on January 16th 2015 at Huntington Beach Pier in California and today I'm taking a day off in Linden Tennessee which is half way between Memphis and Nashville. I've been on the road for 80 days now and covered 2154 miles so far. Crazy distance for me to even think about too. I'm covering 30-35 miles everyday and run about 7 days and then have a day off.
I'm running with a event called "Run With US America " which is me and my friend Patrick Sweeney from California. We are running to raise donations and awareness for a kids charity called "The 100 Mile Club" which gets kids at the start of the school year setting a goal to run/walk 100 miles by the end of the year. They do a little bit everyday to make the goal. Its a great program and the kids love it. We have been meeting people and going to schools talking with the kids and getting them excited to get out and exercise. I love chatting with the kids.
I'm to totally in love with my Point6 socks and have really put them through the tests on this run. Having a great sock and shoe is everything to me and keeping my feet in perfect condition is a must. Even after 2100 miles I've had no blisters and nothing wrong, not even cold feet so I'm happy as. I use a few different pairs from Running Flash Extra light mini crew to the Compression Wave and Compression Ultra light and just love the fit and feeling. Having all the different changes in weather I have had and all in the same day I have been super impressed. POINT6 socks are Awesome!!
So from here my route is Nashville, Knoxville, Roanoke, Washington DC, New York and finish in Boston. I have around 1200 miles to go and I reckon I will be finishing around 20th-25th of May. Getting so close yet still lots of miles to run but every week when I update my map I see how far I've come and it gets me excited to think I've run all that way.
I would love your support and if you can, please write a message or come out for a run/walk if you are close by. I'm in no hurry and always make time to stop and chat to people and would love to meet up with you. You can follow me on facebook at "Jup Brown" , Our event page "Run With Us America". Also I write a blog everyday www.wordpress.jupbrown.com and my website is www.jupbrown.com
Remember to always go after your dreams and make the most of everyday. Thanks so much for your support and look forward to sharing more adventures/ stories with you. Where should I go after this one? Multi sport adventure is next I reckon , Who's coming?"
