... down the nutrition and my stomach settled with time.

4) Chaffing. I applied Vaseline everywhere and I still chaffed. If you have someone supporting you through the race, make sure they have Vaseline on them. I found a mini tub which I will definitely be carrying on me next time.

Throughout the evening, our discussions floated from travel desires to the importance of experiencing the world and how important it was that we were there in the township.
