Another day checked off. I have come to the conclusion that sand is not my friend. If anyone wants me to go to the beach when I return you better find a way to push me across the sand. Todays stages were filled with either lose or semi-hard packed sand. Many places were quite beautiful but my eyes were focused on moving flag to flag. After check point 3 we were greeted with some rather fun areas to ride the dunes down however all that meant was that we had to climb up! True to form, even though the distance from CP 3 to the finish line was 3 1/2 miles it was a very difficult stage.
Michael is having a great day today and will be coming in within the hour. He is walking with flip flops and loving it. I think he is in his element - but he may have a different slant on that. Both Patty and John are also making there way to the finish and it appears they are doing fine. John has been struggling with a bit of stomach issues but think he is conquering that. Afshin, as you might already know has pulled out and ia now happily sitting by the pool in Cairo.
Each day I am feeling stronger so tomorrow I hope to mentally wrap my head around all the dunes to come.
Until tomorrow´s update - keep moving forward & remember to Dream Big!
