Day 14

Did well today and felt much better. 62k - 7hrs almost exactly, 12th place and still 11th overall. It has been getting hotter and hotter each day and today was 90f. My legs felt better; I am not running with constant pain anymore. I pushed it a bit today and hopefully I won't regret it tomorrow.
It was another beautiful run today. We ran 10k straight downhill into a beautiful gorge over the Lot river. The downhill was hard on the legs but worth it for the view. Everyone is so supportive of each other and wants each to succeed. We all recognize how hard we all have to work to keep going each day. That support has had a big impact on us, so much so that no-one has dropped out yet. I think at this point we all want so much to finish and barring any severe injury we will all complete the race.
Well, I'm off to the bar to have a well earned beer.

We are all so proud of you, so GO RUSSELL GO!!!
