Once more into the desert…

Tonight I am sitting in my hotel room in Piura making my final preparations for a long push through the desert. The next main town is over 210km away and is called Chiclayo. The only problem is that from a quick search on google maps that is the next town… So I have to work out how to carry and obtain enough water and food for 4 days of running over 50km per day.

I think it is safe to say that I am feeling a little anxious about this stretch but on the plus side it is good training for the countless other times this is going to happen on the way down Peru. It may be time to start ditching some luxuries and making more space for water in my stroller…

For those interested this is an overview of the desert I am running in – http://www.eoearth.org/view/article/155957/
