My Garmin Data from 2013 shows 1,867m of ascent, and 1,216 of decent on the up run.  The first 45kms feel like a straight uphill, the next 20 steadily uphill, and the last 20ks are actually downhill but with Pollys and Little Pollys to deal with in the middle of that.

Second Badge gets my vote, the one with the year.

I have been away for a while, looks like the Forum has been busy.  I like the patches .. wore mine at this years and got lots of comments.

I am an expat in Angola, so do the TO and Om Die Dam as they are both good training events for Comrades and its easy to get flights from here.  I was back in the UK for a couple of weeks and did the IM Weymouth when home, with the marathon in 3.58 so technically I am qualified although I have no idea what my seeding would be with that.  Still have IM Langkawi to do, that's 12 November and will be doing Portsmouth on 18 December if someone is updating the list.

Ironman 70.3 Budapest done this weekend, including the half marathon in 1.39 which is close to a pb.  Full IM in Langkawi to train for now, which is in November before the Comrades training starts again.

PG3 - I am doing the half IM in Budapest in July, and the full in Langkawi in November.

JAR - any update on your official time being recognised?  I hope all manage to see sense.

SBA, yeah I have .. I am doing a half ironman in July and a full in November so already out swimming, cycling and running.  Running is finally pain free ...

Love all the reports as well, a real mixed bag of emotions as I read them.

SBA, yes I did get a medal.  I would have been pretty peeved if I hadn't so I can understand how your mate feels.

Back in Luanda already ... sigh

Well done everyone, especially the first timers who know understand why comrades lives up to its name ... It really does humble you.

First time a comrades went exactly to plan for me, did 8.43 and finally got the Bill Rowan at the fifth attempt on the down run. I am really suffering today but it was all worth it. Was wearing my patch on my back and saw Skybluearab and I think John who was also wearing a UK vest.

Up run next year is 4 June in case anyone is interested.
