Stage 5 - 15/04/2016 : 42.2 km
"Hi all, marathon stage done and dusted, again just broke it down into sections, up and down those dunes, rocky plains, it never ends. The thought of the race stage finishing today with only the charity stage tomorrow was a major incentive to get into a decent shuffle to the finish. Palate fatigue has set in badly, over all my foods but of course they sustained me thru the week.
Your foot prayers have worked, no new blisters, life wearing a pack for a week never gets easy, happy to retire this one after tomorrows leg. All I can say is my prep work got me thru, my team of medics,coach, Pilates, You Yang runs with Nic and Denise all made it a better experience, can't beat training simulation, even those long boring sand runs.
I do feel a sense of achievement considering our tough year, all your supportive messages have been my tail wind thru the desert, my gratitude to u all. For my family,each step was taken with u in my thoughts. Better days ahead for all.
See u soon.
