7 toenails left still ...


...they're dropping like flies! Luckily Jan the medical man (who also did a nice job on Diana's tire - see Day 1) is an excellent toenail repair guy too.

Today's 60 mile stage was verrry hard. I was well into the 13th hour, but it's over. The longest day is done. I'm totally whipped - until 4am tomorrow!

Thanks everyone for the messages. Technology is too primitive to allow me to respond to them all.

Now to sleep...perchance to dream.

ohhhhhh nooooooo I stepped outside for a minute and missed your call !!!! I thought it was safe to go out thinking it was 9pm your time and you had gone to bed, I thought maybe you were in an area where you could not get a signal!! Doh.
Glad the long days are behind you...hang in there, you can do it.....we love and miss you...Claire
ps...Hi Diana, hope you are doing well too.

Hang in there Russell...you're doing great! Glad the "long" days are behind you. FYI - There is a link on the HCTR website for instructions on how to make your own toenail necklace. Take care! - Ann

Russ, here are some wise words I got from a fabulous coach named Bobby McGee:

“The miles have miracles. Seek them”

Thanks for the update Russ. Sounds like things are going according to plan. Look out for the buses and cow pies. Run well - Dave Lundberg
