On today s stage the legs were a lot fresher and the run didnt feel nearly
as exhausting as yesterday. Most likely it was the mountains the last
couple of days that had taken a lot of energy out...
My crew today was Don Lookingbill who is himself an accomplished
ultra runner. To my surprise he has actually followed the event even before
I took off from London nearly 2 years ago. He had via the now in-active
"ultramarathonworld" become aware of the run during the teams 2, 5 year of
preparation. So it was great to meet someone who had a "up front" idea of
all the hardship - and wonders - experienced :-)
Since Don has been involved in ultra running since the early 80ties he also
had a lot of interesting stories to tell which I much enjoyed!!
