Pre-race
12-May-2012 03:08:26 AM [(GMT+01:00) Brussels, Copenhagen, Madrid, Paris]

Busy morning with the race briefing and bag inspection...bag weighed in at 7.25 kg...not too bad.  After a 4 hour drive we arrived in Camp 1...located in Wadi Rum.  Beautiful place...incredible sunset lighting up the canyons... we are at about 1000 mtr.  It is still warm which is nice... it will cool off to about 17c tonight... with highs in the 37c-38c range.  We are sleeping in a bedouin tent... 10 people... looks like I have a good group of people.  Quite a few familiar faces from Atacama and Gobi.  I had my final feast tonight... huumus, fatosh, tabelleh, keftah, and on and on... went to my friends at the Marriott and had a dinner packed to go...I made a lot of new friends as I had enough food for me and a dozen others.  Race starts tomorrow at 7am...about 40km...alot of sand...hopefully hardpacked.  145 competitors...with 70% having done multiple events...so quite an experienced group.  Great atmosphere in the camp now nice fire with a group playing arabic music in the background.  Feeling good.
