At the 14 mile water stop for Kelvin... think he's been wrestling with a dog on bodmin!?!?

Hi guys; great stuff so far.

Did you know that there's a JOGLE race coming the other way. Started with seven; now only three left.

Shall I arrange a meet en route?

Basingstoke`s parkrun RD is doing LEJOG. He left roughly the same time as you guys but don`t try to catch him up.......he is on a bike

Good luck guys - thanks for updates here & on twitter.

Cheers guys. Well a quick and late update... been one hell of a day... and were all a little worse than we were last night. Kelvin left off first for what was to be 31.2 mile... and was out from 8:45am and I picked him up 2:45pm. That's a long time in the sun and 21c heat and he did suffer... however he's ok and tonight in good spirits. Caz left for her run 11:45am and spent the first 15 minutes running the wrong way haha. Anyhow she realised and ran her proper leg of 31 mile in 6:30... once again outstanding considering she had killer hills in her leg. I left at 3:45pm for the final leg... first 14 mile was a killer and blisters are killing me. Was in bits at 14.5 mile luckily Kelvin was there to dish out some essentials. Plodded on slowly to cover 27.25 mile in 5:16 but was out for six hours but had to stop for bust blisters etc. So were all sore tonight and I'm suffering... Caz is first off tomorrow morning so we wish her well. I'm off second and Kelvin third. Thankfully we think its decently flat... so its a bye bye to cornwall and dorset and off to Bristol. Speak tomorrow. Cheers for watching.

I heard something about bacon and eggs.

"Keep going!"

The race heading in the opposite direction is down to one remaining runner - and they are still in Scotland!!

Hope you guys aren't passing by too many pubs.

Facebook LeJog Page

Some pictures not for people just eaten. However, we're having more change to update as we go along here.

I've had to rest today as ankles are un-runable, which has meant Caz and Kelvin are on their own today... praying I can run again soon to keep the mileage and spirit going... so I've missed my home leg today... gutted to say the least!

Caz nigh on finished and Kelvin at 11 mile at the moment, DAY SIX!

Nae luck Pug.  Will bring you some pies on Monday to cheer you up.  In all seriousness though, all the very best, hope you are able to run tomorrow.
