Hey carmen, see you in Paris later. Will be wearing a blue sweatshirt with number 32 on front or either (unsurprisingly really) a comrades shirt!!

Safe travels everyone. Hope everyone has a fantastic time.

Quick question re our bags at the end. Do i remember correctly that they appear within the International Area and not in the general tog bag area that everyone else uses? My mind was a blur last time i finished and someone else went and got mine.

Safe travels to everyone. Guess this will be a quiet place soon.....

I received one a few weeks back. It told me which bus number i was on. I think fido said she found hers in her junk folder so perhaps try looking there. Within the email it has the bus tours co ordinators email address so if you need it let me know.

City Lodge - Running Rodent, Lorenzo, Marty74

Hilton - becca, Dannirr, McHilly 

Garden Court South Beach * - Mr K 
* Not the `Garden Court` that the return bus stops at - gutted !! 

Bluewater - Carmen

Would be nice to meet up with a few people once over there.

Jacquie - such a shame you cant run with us, but being at the end to cheer us would be fab. Great idea to come in the start pens though. There is nothing quite like that atmosphere anywhere else in the world. And as carmen says, enjoy the animal spotting. It is just so much fun!!!!

Nice one Becca, i think its all about building confidence in the runs now.

Lorenzo - i completed my first in 2011, said never again at the finish, but then went back again the following year for my b2b!. So this will be my third attempt. In 2011 it was up and managed 9.54, so just the small matter of 55 minutes to find somewhere along the course!!

For breakfast on race day i intend to bring some muesli with me and then have some peanut butter sandwiches in the start area. I am also going to bring some foam cushions to sit on in the start pen.

Lorenzo - I am hopefully going to be flexible with my plan. The absolute backstop should be 9.50 min mileing or 10k per hour in distance. In terms of pace, i think i will try to go for about 9 min mileing early on and intend to break the race down into 15k chunks. Then every 15k i am allowing myself to drift 10 seconds a mile (that's average pace) and see how i feel at various points. During the big 5 hills i think i will try to run 4-5 minutes then walk for 1 minute to try and keep fresh. I also plan to walk every 5km to eat something as well.

This time, i would just like to get further than fields hill and still be on track for my goal. I just want to give myself a chance at Polly Shorts for my target.

Whats your plan? Always interested to hear other peoples take on their race strategy.

Hope everyone enjoying the taper. And where are all these lists??
