Feeling great after day 1

Hi All, Completed first day of 68k in 7hr 11mins, 4th place! Slightly less then 10k per hour. Basically 10k per hour is what I hope to maintain each day!!
Feeling great, a bit tired but well. The race support team that supply drinks, food and directions throughout the day are really wonderful.
This following link is being maintained by the race team. click on the date for the Transe Gaule http://www.yanoo.net/index.php4

Looking forward to a great night sleep on my cot in the school gym!
Stay tuned.....

Russ,

You are still crazy.

I'll tell all the guys down at Collins tonight what they're missing.

Let me think...Cold Beer..or run 40 miles a day..that's a tough one. I'll have to get back to you later.

Seriously, best of luck and Judy and the girls say Hi.

(Maybe I'll go for a quick run before Collins tonight)
