I liked the Comrades cap so much I just wore it for the first time on race day, worked a treat. Also used it for every sunny long race since, though in Scotland that is less use than you might imagine .
North District Cross country relays today, which is far too frenetic for me to enjoy. Nice trails though, I'd have really enjoyed it if the course were 20 miles longer . Did manage a gold medal though, even if the veterans competition was not oversubscribed. Getting into the club's old mens team was the real challenge.
Keep that Silver as a goal baljc, a 2.47 marathon puts you in the right ballpark. I have a dream of getting Silver one day, but it'll need a lot of hard work, and some luck with the conditions. I also did a flat race (56 miler) as my pre-Comrades jump up from the marathon. Invaluable, even if Scotland in March is not Durban in June.
