By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Ian ‘Lion’ Gordon, 43, today completed the fourth day of his 8-day run of Belize from the Hopkins junction in the Southern Highway to the Drums of Our Fathers Monument in Dangriga. He was accompanied by Aniki Martinez, James Martinez and Blaine Caliz for today’s run which was 15.51 miles, 2.32 longer than his usual 13.2 half marathon length.
“It was a walk in the park this morning with these guys,” Gordon said. “Must big them up because this was their first run this long and they did well.”
“I also want to thank Inspector Sanchez, Seri del Mar Luxury Condos for putting me up like a king, the members of the Chinese community who gave me water and hydration drinks, Miss Barbara and Miss Raquel for providing breakfast and dinner and Gary Maya for the fuel for my transportation and the souvenirs he gave me and the three guys that ran with me this morning, Aniki, James and Blaine.”
“I feel like I can run a hundred miles more right now” he said. “Four down and four to go.”
After completing Corozal, Orange Walk, Punta Gorda and Hopkins to Dangriga, he now heads West.
Gordon said that he expects to have more runners with him tomorrow in San Ignacio and Santa Elena.
After San Ignacio and Santa Elena tomorrow, he threads to Belmopan on Saturday where his run will include the ‘We’re Back 5K’ as the first part of his 13.1-mile course.
Sunday, May 2, he’ll be in Belize City before finishing his tour at home in San Pedro on Monday, May 3. That finish coincides with the fifth anniversary of his becoming a marathon runner.
Gordon said anyone is welcome to join him on his Run Around The Country.
