Distance today = 40.91 km; Total distance = 26,190.03 km; Location = Engadine – 34 03.988’ S, 151 00.919’E; Start time = 0811, Finish time = 1521


I had a great day of running, from Thirroul (where D.H. Lawrence lived while he wrote Kangaroo), up the spectacular coast and over Sea Cliff Bridge, through the Royal National Park, and finishing at Engadine.

Chips ran the whole way with me, and I was visited along the way by Jo and Kevin, old friends we originally met in Rome in 1986. Chook, Don, Wayne, and Rob also met us in the park, running the rest of the way, and then Carmel’s cousin, Patrick, also joined in for about 5 km. Chook was not going to let anyone near his record – he’s now up to 285 km.

And then, Klitty and Kevvy the Moth met us at the finish to say hello – what a way to finish a day!!

Tonight we’re staying at Jo and Dave’s, so I’d better get a move on, or I’ll miss dinner.
