Leaving Cape point I started doubting that i will make Port Elizabeth let alone Port Edward, GI got me though the first days encouraging me to manage my injuries.
Along came Keith Clark from Gourits Mouth running with me to Storms River.
Great runner and well done on winning the Outineque trail run last Saturday.
Then ran by myself for the next 450 km good time out.
3 days to fly to JHB to my Mom´s funeral and then back on the road to East London.
Andrew, fat boy, yeti, cave man, Mackay then joined me 20 km south of East London and ran with me to Port Edward in 8 days.
Well done Andrew, that is insane distance.
All this time Skinny was paddling through massive surf and steadily gaining on me and overtaking and then falling back when the wind was wrong.The madness continues tomorrow with hopefully a 60 km day taking me to Hibberdene and then onto Durban for Friday afternoon.
For Clyde there is a big westerly on its way so I´m sure the race is going to be close at the end.
Remember guys all this is a vehicle for raising much needed funds for Lettie to overcome something far greater that any efforts we are doing. So go for it.
This is a TRUE STORY
