Distance today = 53.38 km; Total distance = 21,561.48 km; Location = Merredin (8 km east of) – 31 27.814’ S, 118 21.318′ E; Start time = 0746, Finish time = 1620


I felt much stronger today. I put it down to the lovely meal cooked by Grace last night – lots of vegetables, and not a meat pie in sight.

Once again, the run was uneventful, with 45 km completed before I reached the one and only town of the day, Merredin. I will have to get used to it, as the gaps between civilization will only increase as I approach the Nullarbor.

I actually felt better as the day wore on. Grace ran the last 5 km with me, which made the end of the day even easier.

We have been very lucky these past two days to be the recipients of some great generosity. Both Judi’s Place in Kellerberrin last night, and the Merredin Motel tonight, have provided us with accommodation free of charge. We really appreciate their kindness. Thank you!!!
