The 42 hours of travel time I had to get to South Africa just turned into 4 days. Apparently the 2 blank pages I had left in my passport aren't the right ones, so I need a new passport. Not the best news to hear when trying to board a 10hr flight and they send you back. Frankfurt is a good place to be stranded though, I guess, half way there and on theright time zone. Know the airport and hotel pretty well now, Small bump in the road. I'm really looking forward to this race, its a bit of a ripper for me:) Wish Bryn were here, but he is healing up at home from surgery where he needs to be. I'm staying with Team USA for the first time ever, so that should be fun. C ya later.
