Pre Race Blog:

I wanted to start up my blog before the race, but as usual I'm scrambling to get all sorts of things done before we head off to camp 1.  The most important task of course is to pick up pizza for tonight (priorities).

The last few days have been spent in Quito getting acclimatized, and tying up loose ends for work.  The altitude hasn't been too bad so far (at about 9,000 feet currently).  We will get up to 13,000 feet by the end of this race.

The race starts tomorrow with a nice 48K day (30 miles-ish), so we will have a good test right out of the gate.  I'll be blogging everyday, and they'll pop up with this link throughout the week.  The next time I check in I will (hopefully) have 48K under my belt (and a bit more time to write).  

Off to get some pizza...

Great first day! Be careful, the lack of oxygen can be a lot scarier than dogs! Love Dad
