Another good day’s running for me, Justin’s still flying through the miles and Mike battling through his tendon problems. We had another easy route of one road for 27.5 miles and a turn left (important turn that one!) and another 15 miles down that road. Or rather ‘up’ that road as we were climbing all day to get over the mountains at MacDonald Pass. The weather was very ‘British’ and it drizzled for a good portion of the day, then we had a long period of sunshine with more cloud and further cold rain when we got up high (up to 6500ft in height today).
We’re now a quarter through the time out here and I’m already thinking how weird it will be to not run everyday with Mike and Justin. I’m not going to miss packing and re-packing everyday though – I am simply rubbish at it so every night the motel room I’m in looks like a bomb’s exploded as I’ve been looking for something and then I get 2 mins in the morning to squish it all back in!
The scenery was stunning again, with farms and fields all around, also we ran past some enormous Haystacks and saw some wooden devices which I think were Haystack-making devices called ‘Beaverslides’, from a distance they looked like big looms so I was imagining farmers weaving hay!
I also had a media moment today – a quick interview on ‘Up All Night’ on BBC Radio 5live. They’re going to follow up and keep coming back to me for weekly updates so do listen in! The link here should give you the programme for the 19th June – I’m on about 2:45am in the morning UK time.
