We have arrived safely at Camp 1. The bus ride here was so amazing with the most spectacular views. Not only did we pass through canyons but came upon the most luscious green areas with lamas grazing along side the water. When we arrived at camp it was truly a great site. Large tents with tables sitting around a massive camp fire. It looks like the set of MASH only with a Ritz flare! I am in Tent 2 with seven other individuals. Warrie, myself, another American Brenda, four Chilean contestants and I am sorry to say I have forgotten where the other person is from. The excitement is mounting in anticipation of tomorrow´s start so it will be early to bed for me.
So far my spirits are soaring, I am feeling wonderful and so very excited to run through this beautiful country. The 4 Deserts Group has absolutely put on a first class race and has not missed anything. This blog although brief, is so that everyone at home will know that I am safe and so very happy to be a part of this event. I look forward to filling everyone in and hope that you will be able to see through your your minds eye the beauty that I am going to experience.
Not only am I DREAMING BIG but living my DREAM!
