Day 4: 8/31/2008. 1830. Conversation with Kavara.

Kavara called this morning (9/1 at 8:53 a.m.) from White Sulphur Springs, WV to provide post from last nights events. Before she provided me the updates, I asked about the car accident. It occurred at a busy intersection in Marlinton, WV. The intersection consists of a 3 way stop light and a gas station entrance. After the accident, Kavara went over and examined one of the victims. The lady was ok, but the ambulance took her away as a precaution.

“On 8/31 at 6:30 p.m. the mileage is 229.4 outside of Huntersville, WV. Bradley made his first comment about pain. His left shin is hurting him and affecting his form. Francis brought along some Arnica Gel, a homeopathic ointment for joints and muscle aches. Bradley conceded and let her rub it on his shins and knees. When she touched his shin, he cringed, so it must be hurting pretty badly.

He is eating more solid food now. He had a 6″ tuna sub from Subway and a cup of Big Bill Young’s warm soup.

Generally he says he feels alright except for his shin. He continues to run. He stays in each aid station for less than 5 minutes. He is more mellow and quiet now. He did get fired up at the last aid station when he saw his friends Bill Young and Dan Lehmann (both WVMTR) for the first time since the ALTSRA began. Dan [Lehmann] is running the 13 mile stretch with him from mile 229.4 to mile 243.03. After this he has a very long trail section through the dark without aid. Bill Young will accompany him.” kv
