Finally it is race day, I was up at 4am packing strapping my feet and packing and sorting my gear for the day. Yes we get given lists on what to take and all but its very hard to know how cold you are going to be and what layers you want to be wearing etc. Breakfast was at 5am and then we all began heading to King George Island on the zodiacs.

Sounds like a tough crossing - imagine what it was like for the early explorers! But an impressive Stage 1 - 3rd woman is amazing. I want to see photos of burpees during each Stage - hahaha. Don't forget to enjoy the experience - more people climb Everest than run in Antarctica.
