Day 29 - 38km

 

Today was great actually, i had no phone reception all day whilst out on the run. This meant I spoke to my brother briefly at the very beginning of the day, but after that. The only communication was with my Spot Gen3 GPS device to upload my position onto my website but also to let my loved ones know I'm ok as I promised I would do so everyday after I am done and safe for the night. 

Shared lunch with victor and his mum today. Victor was 11 and heading back to the states in two months time to be with his sister and dad. He had been in Mexico for 4 years now although he was born in the states. 3 bucks

At the very end of the run I met Alex sitting in his truck with his lovely wife. He said that he had seen me a few miles back. The two of them were under a big tree eating pipi' sin corn mash, wrapped and cooked in the corn husk. We spoke for a little while, he was a singer, he travelled around both Mexico and America performing. Also offered me some advice on the local area and listened to why I was doing this run. It was literally outside of my hotel. I was dripping with sweat, but I didn't mind and neither did he.

Today's run was positive, it was the quickest I have moved in a week. I did however activate the injury which had been preventing from moving quickly the last week.

It will be interesting tomorrow morning to see how it feels. I am icing it tonight with some ice from the OXXO across the road. 

I got a bit angry on this run, not for any other reason but I wanted to. I was out there hunting today.

Maybe this approach was partly or wholly attributed to a fight I had with my girlfriend that is still back in OZ. Got to do better on that front....it's been a little " all about me".

The owner of the hotel from last night Ben was very helpful in answering a few of my questions, well, he just stopped into this hotel to introduce me to his friends and make sure I got on fine!!!!!! What a great guy. Everyday now I am meeting amazing people!!!
