A RUNNING JOURNAL
After finishing day 5, Mark and I got to our guesthouse and waiting excitedly for Kirsty and Erin. Not only were we looking forward to seeing them but they were also bringing takeaway pizza from Siem Reap and after 9 consecutive meals of vegetable fried rice, we couldn’t wait!
The day started well with lovely trails through villages with the temperature cool and a nice breeze. That all changed at 10 am as the heat dialled up and it was like running in an oven for the rest of the day. We continued to push along through, and although my feet were sore I was moving at a steady pace.
I was looking forward to today as we had a day of trails through the Cambodian countryside, and we were not disappointed. The weather was cooler as we made our way out of Kampong Thom, which is Cambodia’s 3rd largest city. I love the vibrancy of Cambodia, and it was an amazing sight to run past the fish market which was buzzing at 6 am.
