Day 3….Done
02-Sep-2014 02:04:40 AM [(GMT-05:00) Eastern Time(US & Canada)]

And it’s hump day, all downhill from here, I hope!

Firstly, as epilogue from yesterday’s blog, Luba did complete but didn’t get in until around 8:30. I’m so proud of her completing that course in the dark. That takes courage and determination.

Another long day with the cloudless heat that we have come to expect from the last 2 days. I can’t explain how much the weather saps every ounce of energy. Add on to that going 25 miles and carrying a 8KG backpack for over 8 hours and travelling through some challenging terrain makes it a truly “special” experience. That would explain why we have already lost 32 competitors and I’m sure there will be more before the event is over.

I’m having a really bad blister day. I usually don’t suffer much but today I pick up 5, one all cross the ball of my foot. I’m really going to have to watch them or I’ll be in real trouble.

The course was as beautiful as I have come to expect for Madagascar and RTP. The highlight was going through the Red Tsingy Valley which had the most amazing sandstone needle structures. They rose from the floor of canyon like a forest of church organ pipes. Amazing.

It was a long day covering another 42K and had a good amount of elevation each peak making us often scramble up 200 meters.

We have both finished for the day and we are about to eat another fine quality freeze dried meal. Words fail to express my excitement over the prospect of the imminent fine dining experience…….
