Stage 8 day 9.

Sun sun sun, it was hot today but nice, some biggish hills which were long not steep . With not having to pack up the tents we got to chill a bit more before we drove out. We drove 30 miles to the start and were off running by 8am. The roads were so long and straight today and it took ages to get along them. Magic views .

Day 24 Day 23 Day 22 Day 26

Linda was sleepy today and for a change following me but once we hit the mid way aid spot she put on her headphones and took off. I didn’t even try to go with her. I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep up. She ran a great run and came in Sub 5 hrs, so so happy for her.

I ran the second half with Chris the Irish Goat from Texas, it was great to finally get a few miles together and have a chat. We cruised along and came in in a nice 5 hrs 19mins. Im happy to be able to keep this pace everyday. Had a tight Hamstring on the left side again but it was ok.

It was another great day but not much really happened. Looking forward to tomorrow as we are 2 days from Arizona. Yahoo.

Day 9 so still 10 of each push ups and sit ups, getting a few people doing it now so super stoked and makes me do mine. Thanks

One thought on “Stage 8 day 9.

  1. OK, since you mentioned you are doing your sit ups (or like I saw someone cleverly post – “sit Jups”!) and push ups (or “push Jups”!) I will do mine! I am thankful for the challenge! You and the Team are doing an amazing job! I love reading your blogs! Especially enjoyed yesterday’s shout-out of my son, Barefoot Alex! Isn’t Linda amazing?! Enjoy your run tomorrow!
