Marty - sorry to have missed you. I wasn't sure if the long queue at immigration meant that you arrived first. Great to catch up with caashford, Debra, Old Shadowfax, Terry and others.

What a thing to happen, Patricia, sorry to hear of the theft.

Fingers crossed you make it, lowrez.

caashford - will look out for you.  Birmingham airport is pretty small.  What a great race to run as your first ultra!

Safe journeys everyone.

I'm hoping to run North Beach parkrun, too. Will be representing Leicester Victoria parkrun in the orange tshirt. 

Will be up for sharing a cab to Spiga from City Lodge.

Marty, will look out for you in Durban. I should have a red holdall with wheels and a grey hoody with the 90th Comrades patch. Similarly, caashford and Debra.

Caashford- I missed your post before. Will watch out for you and shar a cab should be fine, as Marty said. I'm at the City Lodge, rather than the Hilton but they are really close. Well done on a great run in London, by the way. 

I tried a sauna the first year that I did Comrades but had the same boredom problem and I dropped it for hot yoga. 

Bon voyage zuluboy.

I'm also in for RttS but not really thinking about that until Comrades is done.  Tromso should be great. I did the Polar Night Half Marathon there a couple of years ago.

Marty - previously I have got the shuttle but sharing a cab sounds good.

Count me in for Spiga, thanks JAR.  I couldn't see anything vegan on their menu but hopefully they can adapt.  I have a club mate who is running Comrades and will see if she would like to join us.

Patricia - I think it would be a brave person that tried the Pap on the course.  I tried Mageu Number 1, which is a drink made from mealie pap, and it was OK but I wouldn't want to try anything new on race day.

On the Monday evening after the race I shall be in Mauritius.
