I passed the 24,000 km milestone early in today’s run. Not far to go now. It was a hilly run, through classic Clare Valley wine country – doesn’t get much better than that.
Quinny and Reefton drove me out to my starting point today, and Bernie and Lesley acted as support crew this afternoon, providing me with a drink and then picking me up.
Carmel was taking some photos during the middle of the day, when she met Scooter Smith from Cardinham Estate. He had seen me on the AFL Footy Show, and ended up giving Carmel a whole case of red wine. What a fantastic gesture. I’m looking forward to trying them over the coming days and weeks. We also received a case of wines from Kemeny’s in Bondi a few weeks back. I’m lucky to have such fine running fuel provided free of charge.
