Bible Run–Southern Style

Bible run 30Bible run 5Joyce and I were part of the group that ran the Bible around the Northern end of the island. The other Bible Run group handled the Southern end of the island. They actually 38 of the 74 miles around the perimeter of the island. One runner (right), in training for a triathlon, ran the whole 38 miles of the Southern route. Hartmut Scherer took all the pictures for this post #3 of the Bible Run including the group picture (left) of everyone who was at the final ceremony at Ypao Beach.
