The more the merrier on the bus. Think we got up to 30 people at the pasta evening and one coach must be about 60(ish) - besides some of the faster runners might want to head back to Durban asap rather than wait till 12hr cut-off or until everyone's back in but I might be wrong.
Debra - already up to 21.5 miles already, that's really good news, I'm happy you're on the way to full fitness.
Hi Mac3 - nope 2017 is officially a non-starter for me - Jackie is holding me to it this year - so no chance of me running and she hasn't given me the slightest hint yet that she's flexible either (although I did notice an entry in my name as an SA club runner)
SS - yes other halves would be more than welcome, I think the more the merrier, if we fill the bus up it gets cheaper for everyone.
Hello all - hope the training and preparation is going well. Amazed to see the lists taking shape already.
I have some catching up to do but there is still no sign of CMA accepting my time from last year so I'm just about on the final stage of grief and accepting my fate.
Training hasn't started up again yet. I'm still recovering and without a Comrades goal for 2017 I've lost my running mojo a little but the break in training has been very nice.
Before I forget to mention it again, before I went on my summer hols I called Maharaj coaches and asked if we could organise our own private coach which still uses the official comrades coach parking zones etc.. They were fine with it and although we didn't discuss price or logistics directly yet I wouldn't expect it to be too excessive.
This will work much better getting us to the start of the down-race in 2018 but assuming folks are okay to hang on till the 12 hr cut-off then it might be something to consider for next year. The main advantage is avoiding the queues back to Durban (sadly not the traffic.)
Hey Lowrez, I'm not feeling like I'm back to normal yet. I've been cycling and doing some gym to keep myself active plus the pollen season this year really messed me up. Not in love with running again yet, hoping two weeks in French countryside in the heat and hills will get my head and body back into shape.
Comrades are still keeping me on hold wrt recognising my results.....
