Day 19 – Pushing more miles out to catch up.

Today I was on a little mission of my own which was to try and catch up on Pat. When I left the race I lost a day getting things sorted and have been running a little more than a marathon a day since then.Today I was going for 60kms or more. Shacky and Vanessa dropped me off again and I headed down the road.

The views again today were epic, I just love the Cactus and mountains here, So many trails around and Im running up the road. haha. I made the first 42kms in around 5.45hrs and then for some silly reason my legs woke up. I ran on like I hadn’t run, Which was great.

I had decided that i would run until 5pm from a 8.20am start, I made it up and over the last hill and a nice downhill was waiting for me. Made for a great last few kms. Just as I was coming to the end I saw 2 people ahead walking towards me with drinks. I was like please be for me as I was tired and thirsty. Dean and Lorri Johnson from Canada who follow Pat had come down on holiday to Arizona and were out looking for us runners. SO awesome aye. I introduced myself and sat down for a chat as Shacky was coming to get me. Really great of them to stop and say hi. They even had a box of beers for Pat. Beautiful people.
