Thank you all for all your positive comments. Dave really enjoys reading them and he says it keeps him motivated. Right now we are out of range for anything so we rely on Roadhouse computers to be able to access your comments.
Right now Dave’s amazing feet are speeding along the Eyre Highway towards Caiguna on the Nullarbor. By the end of today he will be 110kms east of Balladonia and will have only 81kms to go before we get into Caiguna. His troubled left foot is getting better and giving him less grief. In fact yesterday despite hills and a head wind Dave did 42kms in a 8.57 minute pace. He says he is enjoying the challenge and can see that we made need to hit the road earlier when the heat sets in.
Dave is also changing his shoes during the day which may explain why his feet are getting better. He used to say that his feet felt like “chariots of fire” he now says that running with the wheelbarrow feels normal to him and that by the end of the run his hands will be dragging on the ground.
Last week we were thrilled by a surprise visit from Masters runners Denise and Pierre who came armed with a curry made by Pierre and a delicious fruit cake made by Denise which we devoured in no time. Fortunately we were able to spend some time with them both and have some great photos to show of their visit.
Had some trouble with our car when we arrived late Friday in Balladonia and had to have it towed to Kalgoorlie because of warranty issues. Fortunately the problem was just a simple fuse and once in Kalgoorlie was solved quickly. In hindsight if we had known we would have fixed it ourself. Turns out our caravan connection may be the cause of the problem. So we have stocked up on fuses until we can get the caravan connection looked at.
Will chat again when in Caiguna
