Day Three :)

17 Sep

Sand People! Day 3, crossing the Simpson with Multimarathon.

After a 44km run yesterday in 5:49 and temp of 37, had pretty much the same run today. Finished in 5:44. Ran from Northern Territory through into South Australia (pretty cool eh?) Now at Mt Dare. Ran the first 22kms in 2.30 and then took it pretty easy in the heat. Hoka Bondi’s are giving me no grief. Absolutely love them. 4 out of the six of us running the whole desert are wearing them. How weird. Setting up camp and sleeping in a tent is OK so far…..  The orchestra at night (21 people all up) includes about 5 super snorers and lots of gas leaks…. not so good.  132kms done. 518kms to go..

    Nice one Janey!! Was wondering when you’d surface : ) Awesome that you ran from Northern Territory to South Australia in under 6 hours – uh? uh? Also amazing that runners are finding dead wombats, even in the Simpson….
