2nd Attempt: Day 101. The Circle. Monday 5th July 2010, 23.2km, Steps 27352 (7/5/2010)

I am a national TV star! Early this morning as we were running along the Swan River out of Perth D whispered in my ear that this morning I was going to be on the national television program called The Circle which screens on channel Ten. After about 10kms Lindsay from the NBCF Perth Office picked us up and took us down to a beautiful location by the river with the Perth city as our backdrop where we were to do our interview. D put on my pink coat and shoes and got herself spruced and wired up whilst I was so nervous that the call to nature was needed and then we got the 10 sec count down and I was just about to tell the world what we were doing when D told me that she’ll take in from here and do all the talking. I tell you D sometimes just hogs the limelight! Despite my lack of vocal input the interview went well and D got our message across that the whole reason for this run isn’t about the purse for a record but to help others through the raising of funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

After the interview, Lindsay drove D to the foot doctor so D could have a check up, you know, doctors they are like vets for humans. This was a very important appointment as this doctor had the power to end D’s journey if he as not happy with the condition of D’s feet. As navicula breaks can happen again when the feet are under constant pressure: like running up to 50 – 60 kms a day D has made appointments around Australia with various orthopaedic doctors who will monitor her feet as she travels around the country.  The great news is that the doc was very happy with D’s feet and she got the big paws up to continue with our journey. 
After our good news we returned to the 10 K point, said goodbye and thanks to Lindsay we were off on the road again, but not for long as we wanted to return for the afternoon matinee of the circus so we ended our run just past the 23km mark and drove back to Langley Park just in time for the show. Wow what an event, there were ducks, ponies, llamas, people swinging in the air, but who stole the show? Woof woof, who let the dogs out? Damien and his dogs. I was so jealous they could do all sorts of tricks I couldn’t, I felt like I’d had a neglected childhood. Mind you I wouldn’t want to be in that kind of daily spotlight, I have enough trouble with the paparazzi as it is! They follow me wherever I go,  just look at this morning as an example I was on a national television show.  After such a busy day I sneaked off to the pooch palace and enjoyed all the memories of the fabulous Circus Royale. 
Running with you soon.
