Eddie IZ Running - Tuesday 1st to Thursday 3rd September
04 Sep 2009
Started early to help save light at the end of the day, trying to beat the sunset each day! A lovely man ran with Eddie from Otterburn to Belsay. Stopped at a cafe in Belsay and Eddie had scones and coffee cake. Eddie also went through Ponteland today. His legs are feeling heavy today, probably because he needs more sleep! There is lots of rain and strong high winds so had to change his whole kit as it was completely soaked through. And his radio mic stopped working because of the rain too!
Tuesday was the first of September and Eddie had another flag change when he ran out of Scotland and ended up north of Otterburn. The sun came out but it started tipping down as soon as he reached the border. An ex-marine ran with Eddie for a while. There was so much rain that the film crew’s sound was effected! But the snack bar lady gave Eddie a free cup of tea which was very nice.
Wednesday was his day off. They had spent the night in the Redesdale Arms hotel which is the last hotel and the first hotel as you enter and exit the borders. Everyone managed to spend the day resting which was massively needed.
Eddie is REALLY going all out so please sponsor his massive efforts here!
