Stage 2
01-Sep-2014 01:50:16 AM [(GMT+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi]

Hi all

Km travelled today=46

Total covered=82

Toe nails=9.5 [little one ominous]

Blisters= a few but manageable

Today was ridiculously long however I still managed to finish an hour before cut off with people behind me. No pink sweeper jackets to be seen.

Started along the beach and scaled the cliffs…a major bottle neck meant I was pushed back somewhat…made good time to check point one even though they had their distance wrong and we’d run1.5 km more than originally stated…

Saw Baobab trees and rice paddies which were amazing and then got slowed once more as I buddied up with a competitor who was needing attention….I got her to shade and flagged the roving vehicle but this slowed my time considerably [ not that I cared]

I finished the race knee high in water in pitch black…shattered, aching but ready for day 3…

Sorry its not a long one but I’m in desperate need of food and bed!!! Roll on the next stage….
