Sun showers and rainbows were the order of the afternoon today. I got a bit wet, but it wasn’t too heavy. The temperature started to drop, though, particularly as the afternoon drew to a close.

We bid farewell to more of the team this morning, with Bill and Tony, and Peter and Jane all heading off. We’re hoping to meet up again with the latter two again in about a week.

It was fantastic of Bill and Tony to make the effort to travel so far to be part of the support crew. The Pewter Mug Day was a success too – especially as we all woke up feeling fine.

I am now running in my 16th pair of shoes. I got more than 2,350 km out of the last pair, which were the ones donated to me by the Apalategui running store in San Sebastian, Spain. I’m certainly getting good value out of my shoes.
