Stage 1
31-Aug-2014 02:00:43 AM [(GMT+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi]

I feel quite exhausted after completing 40K on day 1. The road is quite flat but carrying more 10kg backpack walking at constant speed seems like finishing a 100K trailwalker. Weather is sunny, hot but glad to have breeze all the way. We passed through some small villages. Kids are welcoming with “Bonjur!” and a big sweet smile.

Thanks my buddy Victor lighten my backpack and a great companion along the course. We are offered a fresh coconut once we crossed the finishing line.

I learnt lots of tips in arranging my backpack easily without different bags attached to the outer layer. Every morning and before we sleep is to pull out everything from backpack to get the sleeping bag, and to rearrange things back in. I believe I’ll be excel in this after this week of routine.

Last night, we saw galaxy, dazzling stars and comet at the camp site by the beach. We rested around 8pm and woke up at 5am. Race started at 8am with high spirit. Tonight, our camp site is on a beach.

Victor and Cana are in good shape. Mom and Dad: I miss you. I’m feeling fine. Don’t worry.

Are you ready?

I'm boarding the plane in 7 hours. This week, I had been busy in packing and making sure I got everything. This morning, I asked my mom to be my equipment checker according to the Mandatory List. At one side, I hope to educate her what kind of race that I'm undergoing and how serious I am. She did a great job and challenged me with questions and tons of WHY? haha. I think she feels more relief now. I'm ready to soak myself into this new experience, to be as receptive as I can and not fear for the challenge. For my fundraising for Hong Kong Cancer Fund - Breast Cancer Care Service, I'm so thrilled to raise HK$110,000. This is an unbelievable quest for myself. Thank you for those who helped me greatly and donated generously. I'm looking forward to meet many of you on this course! Wish you all a safe journey.

Bio

I"ve worked for Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong for 8 years, rotating from different departments and land on Human Resources field within the hotel. I enjoy working in the hospitality industry as you get to meet lots of interesting people. We get to travel to stay at other FS properties to taste the experience as a guest. So we learn to "treat others as you would like to be treated". I studied Hospitality and Tourism Management in Toronto.
