New Year, wind and ice. Day 69, 51.7km  (1/1/2009)

D and I woke early, about 4am and celebrated the 1st day of the New Year by seeing in the sunrise over the Snowy Mountains. We both run along and though of the ones we love and felt very grateful. It’s a very special time running just before dawn and if you listen the earth whispers its secrets to you.  I love to watch the start of a new day with all its hopes and promises and today D and I run along together in silence both contemplating our own thoughts about the coming of the new year and the blessings of the old one. Yesterday (last year) D and I passed our 3000 km mark and today we can start saying “We will be home in October this year” instead of “We will finish next year in October”. This makes a huge difference to one’s mental motivation as it feels like we are moving forward. We can also say “Last year we rose over $50,000 for the NCBF” but “This year we intend to raise over $250,000 for the NBCF”. It’s really only words and sentiments but it does help with the positive affirmations D and I need to keep running day after day. Our positive affirmations were really needed today as we run into a head wind of about 25 – 30 kilometres per hour. At one stage we reached a hill top and D was literally standing still whilst trying to run as the wind was that strong. It looked very comical and I had a doggy laugh. After battling the wind for 9 hours we made it to Cooma where we were met by the Mayor and his wife. We appreciated them coming out on a public holiday and spending time with us, thank you also for the donation. Deborah ended the day at the Cooma caravan park, our first in 8 days, with her right leg in a bucket of ice as she is still trying to get rid of the shin splint and a hot shower. What more can a girl ask for?

Running with you soon.
