After the eventful trek and the hardwork to get the pics uploaded (and I must admit, I did get the pics colour corrected to ensure that the reproduction is accurate, all digital pics need some colour correction!!)
I did my 5.5kms today in a little under 34mins and it felt quite good, no sings of any after effects of the trek. Though I do have a sore throat, hope that does not lead to something more, might have been the water I drank during the trek.
And yes, I did manage to get a reflective vest after all, using some innovative means! Hope to do my early morning run in the next couple of weeks.
