Hi all, Today's distance was 65k. completed in 7:28 and 10th place today which puts m in 6th place overall.
The course today was hilly and my hamstrings were not enjoying the trip! Neither was my stomach. Eventually both settled down and I had a good day. I never thought that freezed dried shepherd's pie (meat and mashed potatoes) could taste so good. Had 2 servings after the race; yummy. I was feeling like a celeb today, the local newspaper interviewed me this afternoon. Hopefully I can get a copy of the paper. Each day at the end of the race there is a banner we run under and many of the locals come out to cheer us on. It really is a nice race running through some lovely French towns. Last night the race organizers provided a delicious dinner of Spaghetti Bolognese. During the race today we had lots of bananas and oranges. Tonight though we are on our own, so I am waiting now for the french restaurants to open up for dinner!!
Tomorrow a slightly longer course 75k, hoping to do around 9hours. Wish me luck.
