Distance today = 50.65 km; Total distance = 25,769.05 km; Location = Cootamundra (14 km west of) – 34 42.762’ S, 147 55.207′ E; Start time = 0828, Finish time = 1633


It was another day of perfect weather and more visitors on the road.

I started the day with an interview with ABC Wagga, which resulted in lots of waves from those who heard it on their radios.

I passed through Junee and Illabo, where Carmel met me with a pie. Soon after, David from Wagga, who had heard the interview that morning, decided to drive out for a run with me. Thanks David.

Very soon after that, Kate, Tony, and Sue Day met us on the road. They had driven from Sydney so that Kate could run with me. She ran the last 17 km or so, on a course I ran in 2009 as part of my Melbourne to Sydney run. I was feeling much stronger today.

Kate will continue running with me tomorrow, as I head through Cootamundra and on to Harden. Hopefully the weather and idyllic landscape continues.
