The 2019 Le Tour de Larry has begun. It started on January 22, as I flew to Dubai for the Dubai Marathon. On January 26, I flew 14 hours to Boston, from Dubai, and arrived in time to cover the 2019 New Balance Indoor Meeting. I then slept, wrote and walked for 3 days.
The next part of the journey started on January 31. I flew from Boston to Lisbon, then, Lisbon to Frankfurt. Arriving in Frankfurt, I took a train from the airport in Frankfurt to Karlsruhe. No Uber or Lyft in Germany. My taxi driver, quite solicitous did not want my credit card, so we found a Banking machine. I then called the states and told my bank of my whereabouts.
I was in Karlsruhe at the Radisson Blu, which I found on Hotels.com for $74 a night. All of this was done last minute and with some haste as i was trying to gain a sponsor. Special thanks to Nike and USATF who came on board to help me complete the Indoor Le Tour de Larry.
I will keep you updated on the various curiousities of my travel. Welcome for the ride.
