Stage 2
28-Jul-2015 06:15:07 AM [(GMT+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi]

Day2 … DONE! We got the stuffing knocked out of us today. Everyone’s a little shattered … no make that a lot shattered! We’re loving the messages of support so keep them coming please. They mean a lot to 4 weary men. Quick update on the days running – hills hills and more hills. We climbed to 3900m and dropped to around 3000 then back up to 3800 (I don’t know how many times). Highlight of the day was a section on a really narrow single file trail – picture 4 broken men hobbling along as best we could when we were joined by a group of around 10 local kids aged between about 6 and 10 running like mountain goats in shoes 2 sizes too big and laughing and giggling at the gringoes. We gave them a packet of crispy honey dipped almonds and they ran (we hobbled) with us for about half an hour. They couldn’t speak English and we couldn’t speak Spanish let alone the local dialect but we taught them to chant “go Charlie” and  they played along with us. Hamish, our tent mate and NZ friend had a tough day. We found him at checkpoint 2 with a torn calf and declaring his race was over. We gave him a hug and farewelled him, made it to our tent and were torn between feeling sorry for him and celebrating more room in the tent when all of a sudden his smiling face appeared through the tent door – he decided to tough it out and walked on to Camp to stay in the race. So now he has given up his serious racing he’s joining Team NZ for the remainder – now we are 5! Hamish’s tenacity to stay in the Race is just another example of why these events are so amazing. Looking around the Camp tonight is akin to watching the walking wounded but spirits are high and everyone makes an effort to help others no matter how sore they themselves are feeling. We’ve been joined in camp tonight by the local villagers who are standing around looking at us as if we”ve just dropped in from space – lots of smiles but total bemusement on their faces at our appearance and all our equipment. Team NZ have a few nasty blisters and we’re seizing up a bit but we are a team and we pushing on united. Tomorrow’s another day!

Go Charlies - I so now how you all feel! I had to push myself to do more than 1 run in the powder this morning bc it was a little bit windy as I got off the chairlift and my boot kinda hurt too. But I soldiered on thinking about you guys and did 3 runs before my coffee - thanks so much for the inspiration!

Sarah Lichtensteion

Posted: 29-Jul-2015 12:36:01 AM

Hey Timbo I felt your pain just readying yesterdays recount! Sounds like the run is VERY tough but I cant help thinking about the amazing experience, all the beautiful scenery, those divine little children, the villagers checking you out etc. Amazing for Hamish that you have taken him under your "care", I am amazed that he can continue with that injury - very brave. Thinking of you heaps, the weather here has been rain rain rain! We are all settled in the new house and looking forward to cooking you a yummy meal in it, not high on your priority list today, I am sure. Sending huge big hugs and positive thoughts, Sxxxx

Hi Timbo and team!! Am loving reading about your journey, and am so impressed with you all. Amazing to have the locals there to keep you going, must be so exciting for them having you all passing through. Good luck for the next few days keep pushing through I know you can do it! Lots of love, Luc Hallwright xxx

Hi Tim, Wish I was there with the ever growing team NZ and thanks for your help in making at least day one possible for me with the backpack. Trust good karma will see you through to the end. Watch out for the hounds en route..

Posted: 28-Jul-2015 07:53:37 PM

Wow guys so great to get your updates. Really sorry to hear about Hamish's injury and hoping that day 3 has been ok for all of you, your new team of 5! Thinking of you all and sending you loads of love. You guys are a little bit crazy and a big bit A M A Z I N G go Team NZ xx Juliet xx

Day two is always the toughest as you have so much more ahead and think the rest is impossible... BUT IT ISN'T!!! Take care of those feet and keep the spirits up. It is tough as a team to stay together, but use it as your strength. Help each other in the lows and try to have a good laugh. Sounds like the kids were an awesome pick-me-up. Glad Hamish is with you although sorry to hear about his calf... You guys will rock stage three! We are all behind you. Guts and glory, sweat and tear, blood and dirt. You can do it.

Sarah Spence

Hey Tim, thanks for another great update. Have been thinking about you guys all day after what sounds like a very intense and gruelling day. One step after the other boys, much respect and cheering you on from Belgium. GO TEAM NZ xx

Thank you for all the news about Team NZ Tim, it's so much appreciated, we're lapping up every bit of information we can get! I wished we could be there in the Ecuadorean hills (mountains) to cheer you all on, but we'll have to do it from here. So from all of us in Auckland, we're full of admiration of you guys and wish you all the best for stage 3. Great to hear that you are now a team of 5! Go Team NZ!!!! Love, Dave & Hildine

Hi team, and thank you Timmy for another amazing update. I felt quite emotional hearing the highs and lows from today...I hope Stage 3 is a little less gruelling and Hamish can make it through another day with his new team! You are all so awesome to get this far!!! Hang in there ultras and embrace the new day... Looking forward to the family BBQ Bella...;) loads of love to all kel xxx

What fun! Virtual hugs, (because you're all probably a bit smelly and sweaty by now) lots of love xxx GO TEAM NZ
