RacingThePlanet: Jordan 2012 Blogs

Unreality
07-May-2012 09:50:43 AM [(GMT+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi]

Just a few days to go before the start of the race. It's so unreal right now. 
Since my first attempt at a stage race a couple of years back, I've been preparing for this one slowly but surely, so fingers crossed this time for a finish. Whatever the outcome, the training has been a joy in itself, particularly the Oxfam Trailwalker and TNF100.
I am looking forward to meeting everyone in Amman.
Safe travels.
Next post from Jordan!

What a great way to start your journey on Mothers Day. Photos on site look amazing and I am thinking of you 3 hours into your journey

Happy Mother's Day Margaret, You'll always remember this day as a very special one with Jordan 2012 commencing within a few moments at 3 p.m. Sydney time. The 39 km. journey of Stage 1 is described as "moderate", so perhaps you can reserve some of your 'trojan' resources till more challenging times ahead. Good luck. Love, Margaret & Tammy

Hi Margaret - wishing you all the very best. With your determination, training, good health and joie de vivre, you're sure to do well. Keep thinking of dinner at Rules with Dad! Lxx

Hi Margaret, Do hope everything is going well and the weather is not too hot. I have been watching the weather report for your area and noted a forecast for 41 deg. C. Dry heat, but hopefully not accompanied by a sand storm. However, I know that whatever happens, you will cope and really do hope you're feeling good and ready for the "ordeal"! Booked my flight yesterday and will arrive in London on 21st, one day ahead of you. Then a celebration dinner with MF at Rules on 23rd. It will be a nice change from dry food! Love, Dad.

Dear Margaret, I see that already you're getting strong support from friends which is tremendous. The only words I can add are, GOOD LUCK, GOOD HEALTH and EVERY SUCCESS. Love, Margaret & Tammy.

Hey mum, just the family wishing you luck from home again! While we're typing this, you're probably nearly on the plane to Jordan. Hope this gives you a little boost (: We all know you're going to destroy it, so see you in 3 weeks. Love from Nick, Sheena, Dan and Jean-Marc (:

Hey, I remember the "first attempt". You'd have made it, easy, if your feet didn't look like you'd been a victim of the Spanish Inquisition. You're the Right Stuff! Enjoy every moment.
