Its to a little warmer than hoped for - we'll see what race day brings.

It is interesting on the email confirmation that the internationals have a Registration Queue specified like to local runners do.  I hope that is simply the usual International area as in previous years?

Orbutt - if i make it to DC - as I plan to - then I may as well run!  My son is running it too, but he'll be a little ways ahead

Off tomorrow to South Africa.  Comrades awaits us this Sunday, and a park run the day before. I'm feeling pretty confident as long as I don't screw up the pacing and go too fast in the first half.

Yay!  Orbutt is back on the road!  That is very good news.  Now I'm gonna have to go to Washington in October to celebrate that medal

McHilly - I don't think your shirt is an issue.  They don't like corporate clothing, and really it's caps/hats that they object to.

Anyone receive an actual email confirmation yet?  They were meant to go out today, but I've seen nothing (I am on the start list though)

Safe travels all

Watched this again tonight. A fictional story about Comrades, but filmed during the 1999 down run. Although I've seen it a few times over the years, with just a week to go I thought it a good time to watch it again. Wonderful mood setter, and novices will get a good idea of what the course is like.


Here's the trailer:

What's really a bit unnerving about the weather is that Pietermaritzburg is currently forecast about 5 degrees F warmer than Durban.
