Day 4… man down.

18 Sep

Another 44kms done, track mainly rubble. Temp hit 38. Ran with Pete and Rowdy for most of the run. Finished in just under 6 hours. The only man to finish last year was retired before CP 3. Only good news about that is that Rowdy gets his HOKAS. Rowdy (doesn’t talk much and a baby at 24) has been struggling over rocks and took the shoes off Barry’s feet before they were in the car…. Howie (the dark horse, or the horse dentist) reclaimed the orange singlet that nobody else wants in this heat. 176kms done. 484kms to go. Feeling great. No issues ……..yet…………

    Barry probably just needs some creamy rice? Can’t believe you desert runners are already going war-styles and capturing the shoes of the fallen. If it’s looking like cannibalism please phone and we’ll try to get a pizza to you first : )
