After a marathon-day (literally) with scorching heat, it looks like Jeff is still in the Top 50!
Rest day was great, although my knee hurts more at rest than in motion! A great thrill to cheer on the people finishing the long day in 30 hours — brave people!
I went into the marathon today in awe at what the body can handle. I hobbled to the start line but my legs came alive and I was stunned to run just under a 4:30 in these conditions after the week and my epic run on the long day.
I dedicated my run today to my grandmothers and wife’s grandmother and my family — I certainly felt their strength push me through the long distance and extreme heat – it topped 46C!
Toward the end of the stage I saw my best friend Sean, Becky, and other friends and family beside and in front of me pulling me through the most grueling part. My Atl cycling friends then pace-lined me through the headwind during the final two miles… A bit crazy, but I felt this and it really helped.
One stage to go… The Paris opera will perform a concert in the desert for us tonite – no kidding!
My sincere thanks to all!!!
