So much information on here my already turned-to-mush brain is going to explode !
SD - made me chuckle to read your post about you getting confused as well...there's hope for a terrified newbie like me then.
I had planned on doing my last long run yesterday - 3.3 hours along South Downs way but sadly I have picked up a horrid chest infection which is making me cough like a geriatric old man ! I am looking on the bright side tho in that thank GOD it didn't happen a few weeks ago before I had done the Crawley Track, Bewl and 3 Forts or I would be majorly panicking now.
It really is all encompassing this Comrades thing isn't it ??
I really am losing it I think - leaving taps running at home, forgetting the names of my daughters etc etc......it's at times like this you really are very grateful for the love and support of your long suffering family members and work colleagues...and boy oh boy...mine are suffering !!
I never booked on to the bus tour. My original thoughts were it would just be too scary to see what the hell I'd got ahead of me. As per usual for me tho, I am now changing my mind. I see that the Friday one is full and I have not booked on as yet, but would it still be possible to book on to the Sat one at Expo on the Friday ??
I arrive on Thursday - the SA Heathrow shuffle. Plan to go to Expo Friday, RW pasta party on Friday - really just so I won't have to stress about where to eat - and then chill in the hotel on Saturday....hopefully by the pool with a book altho I think I will just spend the day gazing off into the distance trying to keep it together !!
On the subject of places to eat - I'm guessing there are stacks of eateries by the beach area ??
...and taxis....from the airport. Are we likely to get ripped off or are there quite tight controls over the pricing etc etc.......
I will be back later with more daft questions........i am on drugs now you know, just to compound the whole craziness !!
