SHAKE AND BAKE BABY!
01-Sep-2014 01:30:48 AM [(GMT+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi]

Finished really strong today but man was it hard. Like insanely challenging both physically and mentally. Finished 72nd and im pretty sure it hit 45 degrees today…stoked! So, theres honestly too much to say about today, 46.5km is a lot of land but I can tell you this! When I signed up for this madness I obviously h dome sort of expectations or hope about what I would be like or look like, yesterday was quite monotonous but today was absolutely everything I could have imagined I would be like. Running next to the volcanic coastline literally being splashed (steve took a great photo…since my camera is in paris or Tana or something.), loads of river crossings, mud knee deep pulling shoes off, climbs, descents, zebus (cows), crazy snake, dangerous bridges, sand…so much damn sand…endless scorching hot damn sand….SAND! but a highlight, and what brought tears to my eyes, was crawling past some local kids and trying to ask what they were doing; they had some weird kite thing going, and they laughed, then I laughed, then they copied my silly girly giggle…then we laughed even more. Laughing and smiling; the international symbol of joy and happiness. Exactly what I needed 40km in when my mind was in a bit of a dark place. My body, mind and feet especially were not prepared for this heat and sand! Feet re absolutely mangled…blistrs covering the bottom of my feet, blisters under calluses…pain. Lots of pain. Ironically running feels so much better than walking!!! Fortunately my hip is feeling flawless right now…maybe not flawless but not much pain at all. Win! Thanks again for he messages everyone; you got me all emotional :]. Cindy, you’re an angel and im so happy briea left so I got to work with you haha. You’ve made some incredible progress and you take my shit! Briea cut that shit out…yure making m emotional in front of my competitors! Bad tactic!..kidding, don’t stop hehe. Laurel, as far as I know my mom is taking care of sushi but who knows!!! Today was tough but pain is just weakness leaving the body..i think. Bug are getting bad! Sort out the typos yourself haha. Love you all…keep sending the love! Thanks!
