Distance today = 49.12 km; Total distance = 25,818.17 km; Location = Harden – 34 32.374’ S, 148 19.446′ E; Start time = 0832, Finish time = 1602


The last couple of days have been quite a bit warmer than any other day so far on the run in Australia. It has only been about 23C in the shade, but in the low 30s in the direct sunshine.

Kate ran the first 14 km with me this morning, and the final 16 km as well. Her 30 km is the most she has ever run in one day. She only took up running at the beginning of last year, about the time I set off on the world run. I reckon she has quite a long running future in front of her.

Kate ran with me into Cootamundra, a very nice country town. I then headed to Wallendbeen, where she joined me again, finishing in Harden Murrumburrah. It was quite a hilly day, which is something I am going to have to get used to over the next week.

Kate, Tony, and Sue are staying with Carmel and me again tonight (different rooms, of course). It’s great to have company.
