We are back at the beach at a seasonal fishing village after a spectacular day out on the dunes. The middle section saw us ascend a massive dune and traverse its ridge for 9km. endless sand to the left (east) and the Atlantic to the right. It was blowing a gale up there and you needed both hands and feet to scale the peaks. Very hard going but amazing to be up there. Always great to have Kari greet me at a checkpoint along the way.
So happy my calf has held up and to have a good final run after the disappointment on the Long Day. Also great to come into the finish line with tent mate Simon in 26th.
240km done, 10km to do tomorrow. Lots more to write but will have to wait until after the race.
Thx again for all the messages of support.
