Bubble Boy Reza explains he was okay and set to make it!
At 1AM Saturday, October 4th, a commercial fishing vessel named
Sindy & Sue approached Reza 80 miles east off the Florida coast.
Reza had lit up very strong led red lights to flash so the boat
would see him and not hit him. Captain Brian of the 55 foot, 59 ton
Sindy & Sue thought he was seeing an alien out in the middle of nowhere.
Then he thought this must be a US government secret operation.
Then he saw a man running in a bubble waving back at him.
Then he asked if Reza was okay and Reza reported he was fine and joked
"which way is Bermuda?" That's when Captain Brian thought
this guy is crazy and needed a rescue. After some convincing
that Reza was doing alright, Brian thought he might like some
food and water. An extra drink might be good because Reza rationed himself
to only 500ml of fresh water consumption and 500 calories daily.
Reza's plan all along was to run at night and sleep 7AM-noon,
make some satellite phone calls, and rest the remainder of the
afternoon. Once 5PM came along, Reza was back at putting
in 7-8 miles an hour in his bubble flowing along with the gulf
stream current. As an experienced ultra runner Reza did not plan
to sweat as much by exercising at night, and thus he would make
do with the sparse space available for food and water in his bubble. read more...
