Stage 5 – The Long Day………Done!
05-Sep-2014 09:46:56 AM [(GMT-05:00) Eastern Time(US & Canada)]

No matter how many times or how ready you are for the long day, it is tough. Very tough. Very long.

Once again there was a lot of water crossings, I REALLY hate water crossings now. Unless there is a bridge, tunnel, boat or aeroplane, I have not intention of ever doing a water crossing again. The worst was at the 50K mark where Luba and I both, in the dark, slid and went completely into the cold, smelly, muddy water. We stank, and still another 30K to go.

Luba and I did the long day together….and we’re still married! Just…. And never again.

One difference with this course compared to others is the number of villages we went through. It really gave us a chance to view the daily life, very interesting.

Only 10K to go tomorrow and then we’re done. It is strange to look back to only few years ago when 10K would have been a mammoth task, now it’s just the final shout, no problem.

During the run Luba learnt some Malagasy but now she has forgotten it all. Quality.

My thoughts are now on after the race and what is first on the list; shower, beer, meat, beer, clean clothes, beer, swimming pool or beer. For some reason I’m edging towards a beer first…But first we have a 4 hour journey back, you know that is going to be toxic bus by the time we leave.

This will be my last race blog in Madagascar. Once again, thank you everybody for your comments. It really is appreciated to know there are people outside of this crazy race and can see how insand we really are (Rich).

Thanks, Nigel & Luba
