Becca - which website did you use for the city lodge? Have looked a couple of times but they are saying no rooms available.I assumed they hadn't released them yet since last year i didn't book until November.
And the latest issue of RW has a big mac as recovery food. Are we sure that SD is not a ghost writer and was trying it out at Comrades for practice!!!!
And its a bugger re flights for TO. In my experience the prices only go up for that one.
Lowrez - enjoy the Newham 10k. I ran that in 2013 and the bit under the stadium and through the tunnel towards the end was the best bit. Particularly as they had playing Chariots Of fire through the speakers!! Enjoy.
And interesting when people on here call marathons, qualifiers. You know you are hooked when that happens!!
A quick question about supporters getting to PMB this year. Was it a case of buying a return bus ticket at the expo and getting the buses that eventually brought us all back? And what time did they leave and was it from outside the expo?
Thought i would ask now in prep for future years whilst it is still fresh in our minds.
And just think, whereabouts were we all four weeks ago? I think i could hear the announcer in the stadium willing us all home!!
Loving the photo. I am sure you would get great support from The africans wearing that during the race next year
And i am sure once the entries open, Lorenzo wont be able to stay away. Its quite addictive plus of course you are not a true Comrade until you have run both directions (At least that's what everyone says)
Not sure about any special sessions really, but do plan to keep running hills and probably more downhill running in particular. My club is running the cotswold relay next week so may do more trail running over the summer as well to hopefully aid strength.
And just seen on youtube the last 30 minutes of the race. Here's the link.
lowrez - fantastic first post. If that doesn't get people to run the race next year, nothing will. You described the feelings about the race so well.
Comrades definitely has a place in my heart. Next year will be number 4.
And camber on the down run. Ahhhhhhhh. I can still feel that pain after getting down (it wasn't really running at that stage of the race!!) Fields Hill and towards Pinetown. Those cramps still haunt me. I will do better next year
