So I was up again early after what can only be described as the nicest sleep I have had in a while, I’m not sure if it’s down to the lovely Fish and Chip supper I had last night from Peppers Diner Gweedore or the amazing welcome I received at Kathleen & Micheal’s when I arrived.
I was treated to a lovely breakfast from Marie, before heading off and have to say that I had a few tears in my eyes, when I saw all the children from Bunbeg NS, out to support me. They had bananas, buns, water and even a donation for me. I’m once again overwhelmed.
Today was just unreal the running crew I had with me were really great fun, and made sure we got loads of photos (keep the support team happy :)). We were also treated the whole way with food and drinks starting with ODonnell Fuels who had Freddos ready and waiting, followed by a great coffee in Crolly and more Freddos in The Cope Dungloe in Ardangry with more drinks as well. I think I need to tell the support crew that I’ve had Freddo overdose at this stage.
On route we picked up Gavin from Wild Atlantic Adventure Race and we set-off again down the coast. After stopping so many times for photos I better include a few here
