@sambencheghib on August 12th, 2019 | Day 17: People often told me Pennsylvania would be one of the toughest states. I foolishly shrugged it off and told myself it wouldn’t be a problem, but after hitting the Appalachian mountains two days ago and running 22 miles up and down over these hills... It’s definitely been one hell of a challenge. But the views make it all worth it and I’m sure that when I hit the plains soon enough, I’ll be begging for some hills.

@sambencheghib on August 18th, 2019 | Day 23: What’s up Pittsburgh!! It was a real struggle getting here, between running 3 marathons in the past 3 days and running on narrow highways in the rain but we made it 🙌

Excited to see what this city has to offer and meet local activists. If you know anyone we should meet or anywhere that you think we should check out, let me know! We’re taking the next 2 days off before crossing the border into West Viginia and Ohio.

Next stop: Columbus, OH
