Kimberley Morrison: IRONMAN 70.3 Dubai countdown #2

Chief Correspondent

Arrived safely, preparations in progress…

British long distance professional athlete, Kimberley Morrison (, continues her countdown to IRONMAN 70.3 Dubai.

#2 IM703 Dubai – Good Morning Dubai!

We arrived early hours into Dubai and had an early check-in, so the bags were left and we slept some more and had a leisurely brunch overlooking the lagoons that have been created here around The Palm, in Dubai.

The afternoon was dedicated to the race… a lunchtime run with 2 x 1 miles reps at race pace (my current fitness and form suggests 4.06 pace per km), then off to meet Amy for a spin on the bike.

This was challenging… dodging the busy Dubai afternoon traffic. Just 8km and we were back at the race hotel, ready to breath easy again!

Not a bad view for January…

Ben and I then walked along the beach to registration and then it was time for the race brief. We finished off the day by meeting up with Mum and Dad and enjoying a lovely evening with the family and Amy at 360 (a stunning relaxed bar/ restaurant at the end of the pier where the swim start will be race morning).

Until next time…
