A new motto and a water delivery. Day 181, 70.8km (4/23/2009)

A crescent moon and the morning star accompanied us this morning as we left Julia Creek heading west. After a few hours of running we came across a cattle station called Eddington who’s motto is “drought master stud for bull that mean business”. I turned to D and said “We not bulls but we sure do mean business”, so I have officially adopted the motto “Running Pink, girls that mean business” as our mantra for the run. After Eddington I decided to take a break and got into the back of the truck on my blankie under which I hide my second bag of VIP bikkies, it’s my secret stash of comfort food, shh don’t tell D. It was mid afternoon when D stopped for a drink and a truck pulled up beside us and the driver said: “Would you like some water mate”. It was the water sent by Drew at the supermarket in Hughenden, who had heard we were having trouble getting our water sponsor and sent some to us, to help out, but wait that’s not all when the driver opened the truck it was a refrigerated truck and the water was nice and cold. We all had a bottle each on the spot; it was so refreshing to have cold water in the heat. D then ran on and we went forward to a Roadside stop we had discovered in our camp book. I’ll go now as I have to organize my blankie in my big pink Regent home away from home.

Running with you soon
