Dubai - U.A.E.

After traveling for over 22 hours, I landed in Dubai. It was 1:30am and I didnt get much rest on the plane. I had to make a choice, and make it fast. Go to sleep now, get a few hours of rest before I run my marathon in 5 1/2 hours, or check out the town. We went out!

I grabbed some shawarma, and checked out what Dubai had to offer. At 6am a friend droped me off infront of the Dubai Trade Center where the marathon begain. It was a cool morning which excited me. I knew however that they day would quickly warm up to 80 degrees farinhit. At the start I looked around. Virtually no Arabs running. This was dissapointing. They were all expatriot workers from Britan, Germany, or Australia that I noticed. This was a great training run, and excellent training for sleep deprivation! I also saw the entire city as we ran to the Burj Al-Arab on Jumaria Street and back.

5 days prior I ran the Disney marathon in Orlando.
