D-3 to Antarctic Ice Marathon


  1. Falling sick on the way to the airport - checked.
  2. Flight diversion - checked
  3. Flight postponement - checked
  4. Airport transfer failing to turn up - checked
  5. Electricity cut in hotel and no access to rooms upon check-in after traveling 36 hours - checked
  6. Realising much later that my luggage was broken into on the flight from Santiago to Punta Arenas and some Antarctica gear stolen - checked.

It's been really grueling to get myself to Punta Arenas, Chile but I'm finally here!! The 50+ runners will now go for pre-trip briefings and equipment checks before leaving for Antarctica on 19 November 2013 (weather conditions permitting).

Crossing my fingers that the travel mishaps are now over and that everything would proceed smoothly from here. Stay tuned!
