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
