Before the big race we stayed for a few days in Toowoomba with Duncan and Donna and had a lovely catch up. The trip was a huge trip down memory lane for Chris as he revisited his old haunts and showed me around.

I got to get in a couple of runs and stay on track for the marathon. We had a lovely time and were sad to go but I was anxious to move onto the next phase of our trip.
