We managed to cook a fine bbq last night just before the heavens opened. It was a really typical summer storm; the rain came down in terrific quantities and the camp site was rather flooded! This continued throughout the night and the sound of thunder and torrential rain from inside our little tent seemed LOUD! After dodging a hail storm in the morning we started marathon 38 under fairly dry conditions. The first hour was marked by knee pain (now a familiar companion on the road!) and an inability to get the joint moving freely. For a couple of hours I managed to drag my thoughts away from the knee although I was hanging in there for the last 8 miles or so. I was lucky to have a dry marathon today and the cloudy sky was a god-send keeping the heat at bay. On the 23-mile mark, running out of Peronne, the road went up a huge hill... I got there in the end! A closer look at our map revealed that there is indeed 4 more marathons to Calais although I would very much benefit from a final rest day soon. Our estimated arrival day in Trafalgar Square (barring any worsening injuries!) is WEDNESDAY 31ST AUGUST. We will work out an arrival time ASAP in case anyone can come and cheers us in! Our run today happened to end just outside a vast French WW1 cemetery and we took the opportunity to visit it. We also went to the Commonwealth War Cemetery and a graveyard in which over 11,000 German men were laid to rest. The front-line was right here from 1914-1918 and the numerous lines of graves bear testament to the great losses suffered on all sides in The Great War.
