So far, so good...

Just a quick update that Jeff has made it to the desert and has completed Stages 1&2 so far... running over huge sand dunes in temperatures over 100-120 degrees farenheit... Sounds like a fun way to spend one's vacation time doesn't it?!
He finished the first day in the top 10% and then even higher the second day! So he seems to be feeling good... Let's hope that continues...

For more details and updates each day, including personal updates provided by Jeff, you can refer to this site:

And another big thank you to all that have donated to UNICEF/ING Chances for Children in support of Jeff's race. I have sent messages to Jeff in the desert (using this site, he's #493) including the words of encouragement and support that you have left on the donation site, and I know he really appreciates them all. It's nice that the charity was highlighted on the official Marathon des Sables website in detail here. Some good publicity for a great cause!

And our good friend has included info about the event and fundraiser on her blog "Life on a Bike". It is a great site with some incredible pictures on there, so be sure to check it out sometime if you haven't already. I especially like this post and I think you will to, especially if you've ever experienced the magic and memories of bike rides and/or trips with friends.
