2nd Attempt: Day 48: Fly philosophy and all back together. Thursday 13th 2010, 48.1km, Steps 55616. (5/13/2010)

We left in the dark and cold this morning as D had to get to Streaky Bay for an official meet and greet with the CEO of the Streaky Bay Council and members of the community. On the days that D has an official function or fundraiser, D is usually in serious running mode so not much conversation happens between us as we run down the kilometres. 

However we did have a very strange conversation about flies as there are millions out here and we tend to spend our day, swatting or swallowing them. D told me that it would be terrible to be locked in a room full of flies but she then got all guru on me and said you would have to face that situation philosophically, via a meditational space that would teach you to tolerate the flies crawling all over you. I guess the lessons D was trying to teach me today was a) stop complaining about the flies, b) flies are me friends (bit hard to swallow that lesson) C) learn to fly in the face of adversity and d) in the end every situation can be altered by the attitude you have.
On arrival into Streaky Bay we were met by the officials, press and members of the community with the usual presentations being done, then D and I ran onto the Foreshore Caravan Park were D’s mum had made roast chicken for a special union dinner as we had been apart for three nights. Typically mum’s always making little things into something special.
Running with you soon.
