The Youth Ambassadors reported that the team has had “an incredible, life-changing experience.” They have pushed their physical and mental limits while learning more about themselves, each other, and water issues. There was a sand storm during the night which, among other things, kept the Youth awake most of the night.
Day 6 started with Connor crawling out of his tent covered in blood… from a bloody nose. Doc Affleck treated Connor, who also had headache, sore throat, congested nose, and stomach cramps, all likely due to the dry air and incredible amount of sand ingested the previous day in the dunes and wind. After breakfast, the team started running with everyone feeling the aches and pains of the past 121.5 miles.
As I reported yesterday, Marshall said that plans are to run about another approximately 21.7 miles today (April 24th) and a final 9.3 miles or on Sunday to complete the running portion of the trip. As the Youth said, “Two more days left of running! As painful as this expedition is, we’re loving every minute of it!!!”
