Wow!!!!! This has been absolutely amazing!!! Thursday was a 5 hour bus ride through Morocco to the initial bivouac. The food and "production" have been incredible, Music, Wine, beer, tables.
Today we had our first day of the race!!!!!!!!!!! It was 33 k, stunningly beautiful and VERY hard. Of course I was tremendously nauseous, 30 minutes after finishing,I was fine. We did 13 k through huge dunes. There were clouds so temps only hit 90 or so. I took 8 hours to finish today, the winner 3. I'm still very happy, it was amazing. Helicopters flying overhead, filming and waving cheerful volunteers calling me Justine. Tomorrow 38k.
