Stage 2
14-May-2012 07:08:58 AM [(GMT) Greenwich Mean Time: Dublin, Edinburgh, Lisbon, London]

Day 2 - Who remembers Days of our Lives?? Like sand through the hour glass?? Today we were running in that jolly hour glass - up an ever increasing pile of sand!! Normally you get a bit of hard packed sand, maybe some rocks, some hard earth....No no no. Not today. We spent the whole day in 3-10 inches of super soft sand - and all of it uphill. Which takes me to the next discovery. Petra is the highest place on earth. Its the only logical conclusion. If we keep running uphill and Petra is the finish line then Everest is the worlds greatest illusion!!
 
But it was a bit cooler in parts today. Yesterday was pretty hot. Unofficial readings out on the course were hitting 39c. Today it was less, mostly, which was nice'ish - when I wasn't obsessing about the sand and doing a weird little dance trying to find something relatively firm to stand on.
 
The MARCH teammates are all in good shape. A fair few people have crashed out or pulled out - including 2 teams. A variety of issues and ailments. But don't worry, we're being super careful. Pacing smart and fueling well. Our aim from the start has been to win the team event. Quite a bit harder doing it in a team - but not for us as we all get on uber well and have a similar pace. We're not bothering about place or time - just sticking together and hoping to take the MARCH to team victory - long race and much to go wrong but we'll keep running smart.
 
Loved hearing Finlay's new trick. Hope all is going well in London town Nicola - I'm sure you're holding the fort with finesse in my absence. Hope you all got my day 1 blog with the Happy Mothers Day message Mum? Hello to the Auckland whanau - have the wee cousins found Jordan on the map yet? Cheers for the GP results Casino - bring on Monaco. And lovely to hear from you Borney - we'll hook up when I'm back. Eel - tell Beezer we live for those 'moments' of his. Ollie - buy it -right away - and we'd love to visit!
 
Righto - MARCH on - over and out

L'été est chaud, mais aussi à la montre de plongée appartient à la saison. Alors, quelle est la signification de la replique montre étanche à l'eau, ou plutôt, plongée montre étanche grade signifie vraiment? C'est une question qui persiste depuis longtemps dans nos esprits. Cette question comprend également les aspects suivants. Tout d'abord, la plongée surveille si ou devrait être utilisé pour le niveau officiel d'imperméabilisation; De plus, le niveau d'étanchéité est suffisant pour protéger la montre de plongée dans différents environnements réels. Enfin, la note d'étanchéité est seulement "statique", et l'exercice peut conduire à "l'augmentation drastique" de la pression réelle de l'eau, ce qui rendra la Rolex Montre étanche à l'échec? En fait, toutes les montres assemblées subiront un test hydrostatique avant d'être expédiées hors de la distribution. Toutes les normes de test des montres Oyster, la profondeur d'étanchéité maximale officielle déclarée de 10% plus élevé; normes d'essai de montres de plongée, la profondeur maximale officielle imperméable à l'eau déclarée de 25% plus élevé. D'un point de vue technique commun, cette situation semble évidente, car les concepteurs vont naturellement considérer dépasser le standard requis, en laissant la place à un supplément. Par exemple, la «profondeur d'essai» maximale d'un sous-marin moderne varie habituellement de la moitié ou même des deux tiers de la «profondeur de Richard Mille Montre désintégration». Il a été rapporté que les sous-marins en combat ont dépassé la profondeur de désintégration sans implosion.
