Today was an active rest day with the walking total a baby 16 miles! We feel awesome for the early finish and massively recovered. We are currently enjoying an awesome Sunday evening in the Spencer household – a huge thanks to James and the Spencer ladies for their hospitality.

We enter the new week the correct side of 200 miles are ready to make 4 big pushes to the finish! Wahoo!
