Dear Friends,
The final countdown has started. I am leaving today: first to Tokyo to meet up with my teammates (whom I do not know well at all).  Thursday, we will drive together to Fujikawaguchiko Town where we will stay in a lodge. Gear check, official signing of liability waiver (for the lawyers amongst us....), carbo loading and hydrating, sleeping will keep us busy until Friday 3 pm when this great adventure will start. 
I have been so busy with kids and family visiting that I have hardly had the time to focus on the race. It hit me yesterday night when my son Maxime asked me if I was really going to run almost 169 km. My body feels great, too much tapering I guess.  All my warm gear is ready. I am carrying  two jackets, rain pants,  gloves, hat,  2 smart wool tops, 2 headlamps and spare batteries, first aid kit, pocket knife, "portable toilet " requested by the regulation ( aka dog poo bags), water bottles, 2 iPods, phone, whistle, emergency blanket, 6 energy bars ( I quit gels....), my favourite nacho chips and nuts....
As you all know, I am dedicating this great challenge to Morningtears.  A huge thank you to all who already contributed, please all keep spreading the word !
You can follow me during the race by entering my bib nr 390 (do not try my name, they mixed all my surnames....)
