The Return !!!
21-May-2012 03:11:36 AM [(GMT+09:00) Osaka, Sapporo, Tokyo]

Well the last check in .... Just on the Train back into Tokyo ..... The last stage was beautiful a few very gentle ups and downs over 5k and then the last walk down the Sik humming "Indiana Jones" and ended up at the Treasury. An amazing place to end the event I front of one of such a Historic place. I did miss the Sandstorm on Day 4 evening / night from my blog ... That was amazing just batterered for 2 hours getting sand blasted trying to hang on to your gear as we used the inflatable beds as protection. Our tent was right in the line of fire had poles and ropes all over the place .... Worse than a Roppongi S n M bar !!! After the end of the race we all hung around for a while and had a few (soft) drinks and then wandered through Petra for a quick bite then headed back to the buses to transfer us to the Hotel ...... Then one last little joke from RTP a 2km climb up about 300m .... There was a road way round but we were all still in gear so everyone just went straight up a goat path !!! All the locals looking at 50 people in line hiking up the side of a mountain like we were nuts ..... Seemed sensible to us !!! Had a good dins with 150 strangers as without a weeks worth of grit, grime beard (both guys n some of the girls!!) it was hard to recognize even the guys in your tent let alone the rest of the competitors. My feet are fine one toe a bit sore but defiantly a combination of the soft sand and lessons learnt helped on that front ...... As hard as it was pretty much everyday already i am looking back at the views and the experience as a great week and worth all the training..... A few new tips n lessons i can cut another 1 maybe 2kg off the bag so to have 9ish K !!!!! A massive thanks to the voulenteers and Medics that spend their time and money to fix you / cheer you up. Nothing like "come on u lazy [email protected] get your @rse up here" to inspire you to push to the top of a climb !!! Haha So where next !!!!! We will have to see !!!

Why are you competing?
Although Gobi was the toughest thing I have ever
done I had an amazing time and met some great
people. The physical and mental challenge of
friendly competition on the course is countered by
the views and the banter of evenings round the
fire.
