Eddie Iz Running - Friday 21st August
25 Aug 2009
Eddie finished up in a little neighbourhood last night. One of the locals bought him a bottle of Glenfiddich which was much appreciated! The local kids held up a finish line in Newton Stewart that Eddie ran through.
He ate lots more potatoes for dinner!
The team managed to get half an hour lie in today as their hotel was near the finish line. All the people from last night came out again in the morning to wave Eddie off. Jo cut Eddie’s toenail off completely today. When he was running down the A75 today, Eddie got a police escort. It was a high accident area with hairpin bends and blind hills. As it was such a nasty stretch of road from Stranraer, Gemma and Chris escorted him in their police car for that section.
Eddie signed Gemma’s high vis police jacket.
The weather stayed lovely but unfortunately the forecasts aren’t that accurate so the weather has been surprising them daily!
Eddie will be travelling to Belfast tomorrow.
