Great Walk Foundation - 11th Year
Diaries Diaries 2014 Day 2 - 2014

Hi there to all our supporters. A special thanks to all of our families who allow us the time away from our lives to attend this huge week on the road. We would also like to thank our sponsors Mulgoa Quaries, Penrith Waste Services, Glenmore Park Plumbing, Rebel and Skins for getting us through the week so far. We appreciate your support. The Grill Team and Mark Geyer have obviously had a massive impact on this years event, we are enternally thakful for your help and envolvment.

Today saw us head from Tarana to Lithgow via Lake Lyell. The track is all sealed road however the undulating terrain is soul destroying. These boys dominated on the road and carved this up. Crossy and Rob Wearn lead from the front and set the pace, followed by Tony Bowden, Graham O'Kell and Dianne Azzopardi. These guys were walking early in the cold and endured tough elements.

There were some very funny moments throughout the day back with the main group. Greeny, Mules, Nelso, MG, Cam and Trent kept each other very entertained with classic walk antics and plenty of stories. Some road kill along the way provided some funny photos. Those of you who are on Twitter would have enjoyed these pics through the day.

Man of the match today was nominated by Crossy who is one of the originals. He reckons Trent Baker (podiatrist) and Cam Mc'Innes (physio) took him from a nine out of ten pain scale last night to a one out of ten today during the walk. It's great to have a few of the walkers with some medical skills to help get the team through. For me, man of the match is Mark Mulock, who every year dominates the massive 3km hill coming out of Lake Lyell and inspires everyone to complete the climb as quickly as they can. Well played Mark!

All in all the day was amazing. The conditions were great with sunny skies and a cool breeze. The walkers kept each other happy and motivated which is half the challenge. Thanks again to our sponsors and families for their constant support this week and also throughout the year. See you all tomorrow night for another upate and through the day on Twitter.
