Stage 4
16-May-2012 07:50:31 AM [(GMT+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi]

This is not my intended text but I feel I have to tell you I am typing in the middle of a sand  storm in the open and I can barely see the screen....

 

It was not planned but it seems like I have completed each stage roughly in 5 hours. (I am now fullly covered in sand)

 

Yesterday, it was cool in the morning  when we woke up (at 4am) so I wore  my jacket for the first time. However, just as I was taking it off I felt something in its pocet. To my surprise they were a pair of cufflinks my dear wife Rana gave me asa gift a while back. They are in fact my favourite,they are tin the shape he attacking ships from Space Invaders. Ii have kept them with my camera for good luck and it worked. My anckle did not cause any problems. In fact, everything held perfectly. I came in 21st.

 

It was a very hard course with a group of very experienced runners. Barring some unexpected injury goal one is well in sight. But goal two of top 20 seems hard. Let's see how tomorrow goes. But regardless, thank you for all your support and I can't wait to see you all. Especially my dear wife Rana....

 

 

Rana, the last camp is almost 6km from Petra. You should come on Friday.... Have a safe flight and excellent job with the presentation...

Dev - it's always great to find a surprise and maybe it's a little nudge to keep you smiling rather than thinking about your ankle or anything else. Keep going strong - there is very little between you and the next few competitors and you know how to finish these!! We are wishing you well from here buddy!
