55 miles is a long way to run...
...especially when you have to run 60 miles tomorrow. But so it goes.
The weather was much kinder today, & the course alternated between beautiful paths by lovely fields, and deathly spells of running facing huge trucks & buses without any shoulder.
Diana ran some pieces with me, which helped raise my flagging spirits. It took just over 10 hours, & thanks to a railroad crossing near the finish, I managed to finish with J-B (again) & my Norwegian friend Trond. 11th again overall, I think.
Now I'm astonishly tired - another 4am wake-up tomorrow. Looking forward to some shorter stages soon!
