Welcome to Camp 4 at the end of the third leg (official name Sea of Sand)..
Before commenting on today's run I just want to say happy birthday to my fantastc wife Dalene. I am thinking of you and the boys every step of the way. Miss you lots!
Today's leg covered 42.k km and it took me 8h00 to finish it.
It was a very tough day and from 27km onwards I had no strength and felt very tired. In addition, I thought I lost my heart rate monitor (it was in my back pack all the time), my watch died on the starting line, one of my tracking poles is not working any more, and I have a few very bad blisters.
So, enough said about today. Tonight I have to regroup for tomorrow's 40km before the long run on Thursday.
Thank you to everyone for the messages and comments. Please keep them coming.
After running with CANSA's pink armband today, tomorrow is the turn of the Endangered Wildlife Trust (red armband).
