Shane James has conquered running from Burnie to Eddystone Point in eight days.
The Somerset runner has tackled the first leg of his 1000km trek to raise awareness for Stiff Person Syndrome, a condition he was diagnosed with in 2007.
"I'm a little bit tired, more head tired," Mr James said.
He said a rest day at Tomahawk was made possible after the caravan park put him up. The runner said the Bridport Hotel had also provided accommodation in an earlier leg.
"It's such a long hike. I knew I was going to need to look after my body, it's a tightrope and a fine balance of making sure I let go of any ego. But I don't feel too bad now," he said.
"I didn't think at first I would be carrying all my gear. I did need it just in case but this made it a different challenge in itself."
"It was more intense on the muscles, making it more of a work out rather than the running."
Mr James said the people have been unbelievable, and said he felt a 'buzz' when a local on the east coast gave him the nickname Cliffy, after ultra-marathoner Cliff Young.
"Getting to Eddystone Point, there's something about going from Burnie, it's a real incredible feeling."
The festive period has provided Mr James the opportunity to catch his breath before he embarks on a second stint where he will run to Marrawah and back to Somerset.
"I'll do the second leg after Christmas after getting organised here. The reason to stop here is to have Christmas with the family," Mr James said.
