A RUNNING JOURNAL
Matt – The Challenge
To everyone who generously sponsored us, donated their amazing properties to our auction, and gave fantastic prizes to the fundraising event raffle, a huge thank you. Without your support and generosity, we wouldn’t have even gotten close to raising the amount we now have.
DAY 7 (FINAL DAY!) – MATT
As the gun went off, the usual jostling for position started and I want to get clear of the crowds so went out pretty quickly. Before too long I saw the 1km sign and the field has spread nicely. The route was shaded and there were kids lining the sides asking for ‘high fives’ as we went past.
Day 6 (Ferg)
Today was a special day as we ran through a number of the villages that TGF work in, so it was a nice feeling to have a connection with the villages as we ran past and it was extra special when the villagers were cheering and supporting.
Day 6 (Matt)
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!
Day 5 (Ferg)
We were mainly on the trail today which was really nice apart from 6km on a main road, and as always the excitement and cheering from the kids in the villages make it all worth it. It is all the motivation you need when you start to get sore and tired.
Day 5 (Matt)
It was tough to drag myself out of bed this morning when another ridiculously early alarm went off. Although, as we started the run from the guesthouse, a nice cool breeze greeted us, and my massage had worked wonders because my legs felt fresh…..ish!
