Day 112, Putnam. A trail that showed me how tried I must be

A warm start as I left my last nights home at the Saint Peters church, Huge thank you to Father Perry for putting me up. I was feeling pretty good and excitement in my mind fuelling my body to get this day going well from the start.

Day 21 Day 22 Day 23 Day 24

It was really hot today and I reckon if I didnt have so much tree cover I would have slowed down, I was drinking water like crazy and lost count of how many houses I stopped at asking for more. Got to meet some really nice people doing it and they all helped me out.

Day 25 Day 27

Day 28 Day 29 Day 215

I did 34.7 miles today but not before struggling big time with this beautiful trail I got to spend 14 miles on and to be honest it took everything I had to come out the end of it. I knew I was tried but today I found out just how much. I was tripping over everything, falling sideways losing my balance and just so slow on anything that wasn’t flat like the road. I loved being off the road and in the nature and normally I would be cruising along but not today it was my worst nightmare in there. Sorry beautiful trail I’ll come back and enjoy you when I feel strong again.

Day 210 Day 211 Day 214 Day 230 Day 229

Day 228 Day 227

Along the trail I meet Dean, he was working with his bro on making the trail wider, Super friendly guy thanks for having a chat .

Day 232 Day 233 Day 234 Day 235

Day 236 Day 239

I made it to Putnam and into the hotel and just sat there for a hour wanting to shower but just needed to rest, I thought of the whole trip and it made me happy and repowered me right up and excited for tomorrow. Today around lunch time I sa a post that Pat had made it to the Boston marathon start line, It made me smile big time well done bro. Enjoy your day off and frisbee gold while I get my kiwi butt to that line so I can line up with you and finish this baby off together. 32 miles and Ill be there now I know I can do that !

  1. Jup you are awesome. I am sorry I didnt get down to run with you. Things have been crazy here. We had Bronwyn and her family here for 10 days around the time you were running towards here, so timing just didnt work out. Glad you have nearly reached your goal – I have never run Boston but it is on my Plans.
    I am sure you have inspired many by what you have done,
    Lots of love,
    Pip
