A warm afternoon withÂ temp’s in the 70’s, but a strong wind around 24 mph ( 40kph ). The injection of energy that the 6 day runners brought in seems to be waning aÂ little. In the 10 day race there are groups of runners forming on the board within a few miles of each other. there will be a group of 4 or 5 then a gap of a few miles and another groupÂ of 4 or 5. Some of theÂ 10 dayers are rethinking thereÂ goals and strategies, some of those new to the game are coming to terms with the reality of the task. When I go there I feel as though I am in the thick of it, withÂ the odd friend asking for advice.
