2nd Attempt: Day 114. Kilometre frustration and a Sunday tradition. Sunday 18th July 2010, 61km, Steps 70605  (7/18/2010)

We took off early this morning from the 60km to Billabong green distance sign to a beautiful sunrise and the day cleared to become the perfect running day. D put in a steady run and arrived at Billabong Roadhouse just on dusk to discover she had run 61kms instead of 60kms! This discrepancy in distance from what the green signs indicate to what D’s and the trucks GPS reads that we have run is one of the most frustrating element of our journey. In most cases we do more kms than the green signs so I have decided that the person who surveyed and placed all the green distance signs around Australia was drunk or didn’t wear a GPS when he did it! I just don’t understand in this techno age why you wouldn’t use a GPS and get the distance right? I was having a great old wag about the distance difference. I was having a good old complaint to D about this difference when she all of a sudden said to me “Maggie whatever the distance is, we still have to run all the way, so stop whinging” and on that note she went off to a shower. My nose was still a little out of joint but then I remembered in was Sunday night and no matter where we are or in what type of weather we are in we D’s Mum’s always cooks a Sunday Roast, it’s a family tradition. With roast chicken in my belly I went to bed a much happier dog.

Running with you soon.
