The knowledge that the finish of marathon 41 would leave us just a few hours from the ferry terminal in Calais was a big motivation today! The old legs creaked into action without too much fuss today and the rest day certainly paid dividends during the first 10-miles or so. It was great to be more mobile and with cooler weather the miles passed steadily by. At the 15-mile mark the legs began to seize-up somewhat and by the end I was hanging on in there with a grimace! This is all forgotten pretty quickly though and you recover quite rapidly after you have reached the end... We pitched tents on a site not far from Calais and we are booked onto a ferry tomorrow. I'm really excited to run on home soil and I can't quite believe that Italy, Switzerland and France are so nearly behind us. It has already been a summer rich in experiences that we will never forget!
