Day 2

As Cody approached the check point you could see from the look on his face the trail gave him a bit of a beating.

September 26, 2012 | | The End to End Challenge

The morning started like any other. We awoke to the sweet sounds of Timmone & Pumba serenading the team with a bit of Hakuna Matata. Both Cody and Scott proceeded to apply their nipples with a bit of Bag Balm & Pentene, make some necessary jokes, laced up and headed out the back door of the Beach Motel onto the Bruce. Sounds like a normal start to me.

I met up with the two after about 20km at a beautiful little spot where they dinned and dashed, off for another 25km.

Check point #2 of day 2 & lunch time. Pizza was on the menu for today. “It has all your food groups” as Cody would say.

As Cody approached the check point you could see from the look on his face the trail gave him a bit of a beating. After not sleeping well the night before, having run 3 marathons in a 2 day span with one more looming for the day…you could say he was tired. Lunch was very quite, but after some positive notes from Scott (thank you for that), Cody was back on track.

They finished the day at Bluewater Camp ground in Wiarton. So far Cody has remand on schedule keeping up with his projected km per day. Scott was a huge asset on day two, completely positive and kept the two in good spirits. Thank you Scott and good luck on your 12- 100 milers this year!

Good night everyone, Until tomorrow….
