Diane here on behalf of Henri who is doing well but a bit wiped. Today was day 5 on the trails and some 250 km total. Henri is doing great but today was our first "wee bit tough" day. At the start of Kemble Rock/Mountain, logging has the trails all chewed up. So footing was bad. Kind of like waking up on the wrong side of the bed.
He did have an energy lull before noon and I could tell that he was just "different" today. Perhaps it was our decision to bypass Timmys on the way into the trails (which we both regretted minutes down the road) or maybe we can put it down to a restless sleep in the Wiarton motel. As we've now learned from an evening with Doug and Joanne Barber, it may have been the motel. For the ultra runners out there, you'll have to ask Joanne what's up with the motel.
Here's a short sideways video I shot of Henri coming up a crevass this aft.
For all the inquiries, Henri is exactly on schedule. I (Diane) do update the link to the schedule on this blog. Keep in mind, that it is still EARLY so anything can happen.
Henri would like me to share that he credits Chi energy drink to saving his day today, he saw 3 black squirrels (I saw 4) and he picked up a lucky penny on the trails today.
It's late so I'll say good night and wish you all were here!
