Day 2 - 22.5 miles

Today the run started off fast. After the first mile I spotted a brown viper which I was able to dodge. After the 1st checkpoint I slowed down and began to bake under the sun. After the 2nd checkpoint I was reduced to a walk for the last 5 miles. We are still running in the sand dunes which can be lots of climbing but the beauty of them make you forget the pain.

Tomorrow is the 50 mile leg which will be incredibly difficult. Thankfully my feet are fine with just one hot spot on my pinky toe.

Confirm this posted please
