@sambencheghib on August 4th, 2019 | Day 9: 144 miles in and we’re hitting the hills of PA hard. Today was a constant uphill battle and I have a feeling I’ll be seeing a lot more of that in the coming days. But the connections we’re making as we dive deeper inland keep me going and inspire me to continue raising as much awareness as possible. Can’t wait to push to Harrisburg for our next big event on Monday.
Thanks to the crew who came out today @silvia_raccagni @zapelini @landonyost from @parley.tv

@sambencheghib on August 6th, 2019 | Day 12: Made it to Harrisburg, the capital of PA. I decided to only run 6 miles today to spend the day meeting state representatives and environmental organizations that work tirelessly towards making Pennsylvania more sustainable. From @pennfuture who focus on clean energy and cleaning up waterways to representative Tim Briggs who is tryin to pass a series of bills that target banning single use plastic items, it’s been an eye opening experience hearing first hand the everyday battles these environmentalists are facing. Things are looking bright for PA.
Next stop: Dickinson College, Carlisle PA
