Day 7 got off to a cold start, We woke to pretty cold morning after what we have had, Getting closer to the desert is why. We had again 42.8kms to do today and after a day off everyone was feeling great. Sun out again and no real breeze we were off.
I ran with Linda again and we were running great, We mostly do the 1 mile run and about 100m walk thing. Makes it nice and doable and keeps you from getting crazy tired. only 4 turns on todays run and they were early then we just headed East on Route 62.
There was a bit of traffic so we decided to run the trail that run parallel to the road, real nice to run and soft under feet which I was liking. Being a little heavy at the mo I need the cushioning haha
About 20kms in when we hit the road again we spotted that someone ( Later found out it was Rob) had written GO Jup and the others names on the road. Even known it was probably him it was a sweet pick up. these little things pick u up real fast. Also these dinosaurs were there in the middle of nowhere. You see some funny things when running across a country this far, differently don’t miss any of them either.
The sign we really dont want to see, NEXT 100 MILES no services, thats a long way when your running it. We will be going in a straight line for the next 4 marathons( 4 days) until we hit Arizona . So a lot of driving to and front he course everyday to camps and hotels.
Tonight we are staying in the Joshua Tree National park in the camp ground and man is it beautiful, these rocks everywhere and views to die for. OF course we headed up to catch yet another awesome sunset after setting up camp that was.
After a quick briefing for tomorrows run that Sandy takes us for every night the team went into town for some dinner but I decided to chill out tonight , just wanting to rest the legs and relax. Also been learning heaps more on the camera and wanted to take advantage of the stars and clear sky’s. What do you think? any good?
I was trying different shutter speeds to see what would happen.
Thats about it for today, back out there tomorrow and looks like another sunny day. Dont forget your pushups and sit ups.
