“The wind howled again all day. Right in my face. It was very difficult constantly running into the wind. It zaps it right out of your body and head. The only people here who know about the Run are the truckers and the out-of-province people. Everyone else wants to stop and give me a lift.”

“Today I felt alright when I got up. We slept well last night. It was quite cold in the van. The first 12 miles were good and bad, off and on. Very hilly country all day. My stump is still constantly giving me trouble. I had a real long and good sleep break. The next 14 miles were ok. I was pooped at the end. We parked down by a lake. All alone in the woods. Can’t wash or shower or get a haircut.”
