It's the oxygen, stupid
01-Aug-2015 03:49:24 AM [(GMT+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi]

First things first – long day done – huzzah. It started in the usual way for me in this race – just plugging along – grinding through the miles and hills – placed 97 at checkpoint 2. And then as we started to descend – my energy levels soared and legs and lungs started working – and I cracked out the second half in good time – coming in 66th I think. It was the closest I have ever come to the runners high – and now I understand why people say you can get drunk on oxygen – lovely gloopy thick yummy oxygen – I vow to live near sea level in the presence of lots of it. The runners high was further enhanced by a magical sunset as we were coming down from the mountains into the jungle – clouds below you, sun light reflecting.

Message to William – Happy Llama, Sad Llama, Mentally disturbed Llama, Big Fat Mama Llama, Goose. And no, I have not been drinking too much CoCa Tea – W will understand. Message to Shazz – hope u had a good anniversary – a meal  out when I return (with a pint of Tribute for me).

Since my only remaining shaggy stories are rude then can aged parents and children avert your eyes..

There is a young German couple* running the event who fell out in a most unfortunate circumstance. As usual Hilda was way ahead when Axel came across the mangled remains of a large south American flightless bird – with delight he picked up the morsels of meat and rammed them inside a piece of intestine – as a bratwurst treat around the camp fire. Things did not go as planned. As Axel entered the tent, meat in hand, shouting – “tonight Hilda you vill have Rhea* Sausage”

*No similarity to persons dead or alive. Nor indeed South American birds – who live a little south of Ecuador.

And so to tomorrow – a rest day – and Saturday little 11km run in. Looking forward to getting it done and seeing you all

Thank you for your post, There are good post! Developed the Common Rail fuel system for heavy duty vehicles and turned it into practical use on their ECD-U2 common-rail system.Modern common rail systems, whilst working on the same principle sensor are governed by an engine control unit (ECU). The design was acquired by the German Common Rail Shim & Gasket kit companyRobert Bosch GmbH for completion of development and refinement for mass-production Common Rail Nozzle . In hindsight,As the new technology proved to be highly profitable. The Common Rail Injector Valve had little choice but to sell, however,In 1997 they extended its use for passenger cars Common Rail Injector .The first passenger car that used the common rail system.
