Hi Everyone,

Sorry I dropped the ball on the blogs - the days got too long and busy and when we finally got back to the hotel I wa too tired to fill you in. If you have been reading Kathy Brunjes blogs, you know what we have been up to.

It is now the night before the race. It is very strange to start a race at 5:30 pm. You sort of don't know what to do or when to do it during the day. Most of the preparations we would normally make the night before we will do around 10:00 am, then lunch and get everyone off to a nap.

The veterinarians say the race will be won by the team with a plan and strategy. I don't know what our result will be, but we do have a plan and a strategy, and our riders are committed to seeing it through.

ESPN is covering the race and broadcasting 2 hours in 165 countries, including the US. You may be able to see if our plan comes to fruition.

We are 12 hours ahead of you (east coast) so you will be able to see how we are progressing during the day. Please send us good thoughts Nov, 7,8. We will feel those positive vibes over here, half way around the world. We are proud to be here as representatives of the United States and U.S. Endurance. We will do our very best to make you proud!

Becky Hart

Best of luck to our US riders, horses and crew!!!The tougher the ride the better we do. Becky has prepared them well. This could be perfect for the US. Our US riders are trained to plan, think, adapt, and endure whatever the course throws at them. We are a very hardy, tough and scrappy lot. We will watch the internet and cheer you on from afar!!!!!!
