Well, today was not what I had anticipated. Whatever could go wrong, went wrong. To start, my pack was awkwardly stretched so everything kept shifting to the right. Every time I ran, my back was pulled so there was more walking than I had planned to do. The heat is brutal. So, onward for tomorrow. I came into camp somewhere around 6 hrs/45 mins. Generation UCAN recovery drink was consumed, water, dinner eaten and two minor blisters fixed.
I know that tomorrow will be a lot more managable now that some of the equipment issues have been rectified. Our team had a very difficult day for their first day out here...but hoping with some sleep and nourishment tomorrow will be a better experience.
