Sand dune day today just loved it albeit it was tough and so so windy that I thought I was going to get blown off the dunes.
Decided today was just going to push through the day and get in as quick as was possible for me. Had nothing to win or lose in any off it just that I love the freedom of running and tomorrow was only 10 km so somehow if I upset knee too much I could hobble in tomorrow.
Well Col set the tone as when we counted down the start today he took off sprinting with all of us behind him was classic Col and so funny I nearly fell over from laughing so much. Anyway he stopped of course 2 flags down and I high fived him on the way past.
Dunes were stunning today best day ever I told them at the finish line.
Sitting in camp by the beach very windy still ready for dinner and bed and the final 10km to victory. I didn’t think I would make it to the start line but with adjustment here I am ready to finish the final stage.
You would think I have done enough of these races to not get emotional but I still do. It has been tough for me more mentally than anything and again lessons learnt.
Love having my wonderful hubby here and of course everyone loves him too. Looking forward to a hot shower and real food. Thanks to all that have left me messages I will personally catch up with you all when I am home with an email or message. Love to all signing off from cyber tent Namibia xxx
