New shoes, a thorn and more high kms. Day 187, 72.3km (4/29/2009)


We were off in the dark again today and as dawn approach we saw that we were gradually running up long 4 -5 km gradual hills as we run towards the plains of the Barkly Tablelands. At the 15 kilometre point a hot breakfast of baked beans and eggs was a welcome break. D and I ran on together but D seemed to have a bit of a different spring in her step since breakfast. I looked across and noticed that D had change into a new pair of Saucony runners, so she was springing down the road, like she was running on air. Suddenly I felt a sharp pain, ouch, I just stood on a thorn, that put one leg out of action, and in an instant I went from line dancing to line hopping. Maybe I should ask Saucony for some special running shoes for me? D saw me in trouble and as usual came to my rescue and helped rendered me thornless. With the thorn gone all was okay again and we ran on to Camooweal just on the sun was setting where we were clapped and cheered into town by the people at the local watering hole. After some brief answering of questions we walked to the caravan park I was so relieved to see my pink home as today turned out to be another day of over 70 kms by this stage I was so dog tired I could hardly keep my eyes open to eat dinner and now all I want to do is sleep so night all. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
