Masking pain. Day 219, 45.4km  (5/31/2009)


D got on the road this morning determine to cut the kilometres down before the last leg into Darwin despite the fact that her feet are really starting to be a huge problem. I decided to stay in the truck so D could pace herself and I wouldn’t be under her feet, also the guilt I am feeling over causing D so much pain is starting to really get me down. D keeps reassuring me that accidents do happen but I wish I could take back my silly behaviour in Elliot which caused D to trip. As I watched D hobble up the road alone, for the first time I could really see that the situation with her feet isn’t good at all.   D can hardly put her feet down, her gate is all but lost and even though D is very good at masking her emotion even I could see that the pain is too great for her. Despite the pain D manage to push on to the Humpty Doo/Kakadu turnoff managing 45 kilometres and leaving only 35 kilometres to go to Darwin.   The only problem with this is D and I have to be in Darwin at 9am tomorrow morning to meet the Lord Mayor so it was decided that we would all drive forward to the caravan park tonight and tomorrow morning D’s folks would go to the mall and fundraise whilst D, Glyn and I will wake up at 1.30am and drive back to the finishing stop and start our run into Darwin at 2,30am tomorrow morning which will hopefully give us enough time to make our 9am appointment. We all hoped into the truck and drove to the caravan park, on arrival at the park I was once again a problem as the park was a dog free zone but luckily the owners turned a blind eye and I slipped through the gates unnoticed. So no one would know I was there I got to eat my VIP’s and milk in bed tonight, inside my Regent home away from home and then it was a early night.
Running with you soon
