BRUCE TRAIL END-TO-END RECORD ATTEMPT: Day 3

Monday, June 4, 2012 - I'm sitting in the shade of a small tree on a disused dead-end farm lane under a gloriously blue sky with only a scattering of white fluffy clouds, trying to type whilst swatting at deerflies. Yes, boys and girls, your intrepid reporter has ventured outside and is now "embedded" in the end-to-end run crew. I've had a chance to speak with both Charlotte and Chris, and now have some more details to add about Days 1 and 2 in addition to the Day 3 update.

BRUCE TRAIL END-TO-END RECORD ATTEMPT: Day 2

Sunday, June 3, 2012 - In order to pass along some actual facts, I cleverly arranged to have support crew captain and husband (Charlotte's, not mine) Chris include me in the daily updates. The Weather Network had got it right – Char got rained on again – and I also had got it right – the rocky bits were very slippery. Despite this, the plan of slow-and-steady came through and Charlotte finished the 84.8 km 1st leg from the northern terminus in Tobermory down to Lion's Head in 15 hours and 5 minutes.

BRUCE TRAIL END-TO-END RECORD ATTEMPT: Day 1

Saturday, June 2, 2012 - The plan had been to wake up early today, even though it's Saturday. It's 0800 when I blearily crawl out of bed, so I decide that “early” is a relative term and take a look outside. It's a dark and cloudy sky that greets me, which I immediately latch onto as an excuse for sleeping in: there was no bright sunrise to wake me up. The trees across the road are swaying so much in the wind that I begin to get seasick just watching them. In short, it's a grey and blustery morning, perfect for staying in and and not running rugged rocky trails for 15 hours. But don't tell that to Charlotte.
