2nd Attempt: Day 58: Rain in the driest place in Australia. Sunday 23rd May 2010, 43.8km, Steps 51401. (5/23/2010)

Oh what a night! I was woken up but a huge storm with winds that rocked my pink home and hammering rain on the roof. I just couldn’t believe it, a storm in one of the driest places in Australia! Then I remember who was sleeping next to me, D the rain genie and I smiled and went back to sleep knowing that I would be able to have a wee sleep in, as there was no way D would be venturing out in the dark of pre dawn in a storm.

When morning light finally appeared the ground around the caravan park was covered ankle deep in water and some paw people were trying to rescue their tents and belongs from the wet. It was an extraordinary site to see people wondering around in all this water on the Nullarbor Plain and a nearly all the caravaner’s were taking photos of this amazing event; we got a few shots so check our gallery.
Due to the latest of the hour D decided to have breakfast before we started running for the day and I wasn’t going to argue about getting food in my tummy. After breakfast D was about to leave when some folks come up to her and gave her a donations and asked some questions about the run, then of course D wanted to say goodbye and thank you to all the staff at the roadhouse for their kindness and fundraising efforts so time just kept ticking away and finally about 10am we started our running day. Sometimes I think D needs to get a wriggle on and stop talking so much to people as kms need to be achieved!
As we finally left the Nullarbor Roadhouse we spotted some of my distant relatives, dingos, of course there not from the same bloodlines as me, I being a princess, am of blue blood whilst their bloodline is true blue.
As we ran west along the Eyre Hwy we were running into a head wind and had heavy cloud cover and I wondered whether or not there might be another storm on the way. We didn’t have to wait long and showers started and continued in and on/off manner until the end of the day. I was very relieved when the crew found a nice big gravel pit in which we could stay the night as I was cold and wet after 40 plus kilometres. I hit the warmth of the pooch palace as soon as I could and begged D for dinner in bed which was obliged.
Running with you soon.
