By the way Dave is going pretty well today. He was out on the track and on the go at 05.00 hrs and apart from a couple of loo breaks, pit stops for food and a cat nap he has kept moving and has reached 182 laps out of 223. It is fairly hot but not as bad as yesterday.
Antal Voneki is chasing in 3rd place and Sergio Cordeiro is fast catching him in fourth. Dave is well-informed and experienced at this level and is ensuring he keeps trying to stay sufficiently ahead. He is on his 9th Marathon and fighting the pain in his foot really well.
