    I just came across your message as I was surfing the net. I am very interested in communicating with you about the different areas to run in Amman. My husband and I are moving to Jordan this summer. I am a competitive runner and have been very concerned about how and where I will be able to train in Amman. I will admit that I know little about Jordanians and about what is accepted or availible to me. I am also a competitive road cyclist and would like to know what is avalible to me in that area as well. Any information or contacts you could give me would be great! Thanks.

    Tracy Villano?

    This is Karlie England! I teach in Dubai, UAE — and ride and run. I have friends in Amman … I can try to get you some info if you are still looking. Obviously, life threw some curveballs my way — but I can help you regarding the Middle East …

    Take care, Karlie
