Distance today = 48.37 km; Total distance = 25,147.68 km; Location = Caroline Springs – 37 45.329’ S, 144 44.403′ E; Start time = 0800, Finish time = 1517


A bit shorter today, as I needed to finish early to get to a function tonight in Melbourne, which has been arranged by my generous sponsor, Next Digital.

It was a much nicer day – the best weather in more than a week. The landscape was very diverse too – from quiet dirt roads in a national park, to busy suburbia on the outskirts of Melbourne.

It was also a very busy day, with lots of phone calls from the media, including some radio interviews on the road. I expect this to increase tomorrow, when I run through the city.

After his run yesterday, Jeff has moved into second place on the aggregate of distance run with me, with 118 km. There will be much activity in this regard in the next couple of weeks, with Dave and The Hud expected to have a crack at Eric’s record of 56 km, for the furthest run in a single day. The big question is: will one of these guys be able to pass Chook’s aggregate record of 272 km?
