Day 2 & 3 in the books for Sarah’s Crusade for Corey | By Sarah Krebs

June 6, 2023 – Day 2 & 3 done. I appreciate all your kind words, prayers and encouragement!! I would love to respond to everyone but these long days don’t make it possible. I hope to eventually 🙏🏼
Yesterday was a day of slow moving and so many bugs!! Wore the netting most of the day which makes running and breathing very difficult but made it to Tuscobia.

Thankful for Nicole Grey Deeds for sharing some miles with me and helping Ben Krebs out with the kiddos so he could focus on me. Today after a later start, took in some yummy hotel pancakes, I was moving a bit quicker.
Felt good to be able to stretch out my legs for some of the segments. Ending up moving “too quick” for my crew, Ben, and he “lost” me for about 4 hours. Both of our phones were in 🆘making it impossible. Once my phone had reception, I let him know I was good. And I was not lost…I knew where I was the whole time🤪
Today was solo all day. It was weird not seeing anyone yesterday or today. I was thinking I’d see someone on southern blue hills today as I saw a car at the start, but I apparently missed 2 ladies by about 30 minutes! Thank you to all that have donated to the go fund me. Please continue to share and donate if you can.
Added a few more names to the trailer today!! Running for all and so many others! https://gofund.me/7ae1c401
Below is a story filed by Sarah’s son Abel Krebs, 12.
My mom, Sarah Krebs, started her run at 6 a.m., bright and early on top of a bluff overlooking St. Croix River.


She ran 49.9 miles, she said “It’s ok though, it’s still my first day on the job.” She ended at McKenzie Creek Segment. For lunch she had a banana, and a pb&j sandwich.

 She is in a positive mood, and we are doing the best we can as her crew.

Netting to deal with lots of bugs on the trail
