Ralph MDS- Day 3
They were not joking about 45 degrees. Running 40km in this heat was just brutal. Finished in good time though but shoulders really aching something awful. Also I smell like a sewer rat - no, sorry that's not fair to sewer rats. Legs and feet holding up again touch wood, but wish I was looking forward to my chicken tikka with rice for dinner more than I am. Met a lovely girl called Veronika from USA who kept me running to the day's finish line which was great and we crossed together. I have been writing a daily blog but apparently it has not been updated so hope this one reaches you all. Please send me emails/short messages via the Darbaroud site. Those emails are really keeping me going - and thanks to all of you who have sent. Send more than one as some go missing it seems. Tomorrow 82km leg which I prefer not to think about but just prepare well and take it as it comes. Missing you all a lot, cant wait to get back to roti, hokkien mee, a nice bed, friends, colleagues and family.
