Am very jealous of you all getting your pens sorted so early. No chance of that for me until Brighton next year but if the worst comes to the worst I will use my New Forest of 4.07....not ideal but there you go. I will not be able to get a C pen but most certainly want a sub 4 and get a D pen again. I have been told that the roads in Pieter are very narrow so it is quite important to get that decent seeding - I only wish I could muster a C although who knows, maybe I'll get super speedy before Brighton.....in my dreams!!
I am planning on wearing my Comrades hat at BH if weather permits, failing that, I will get the old needle and thread out and sew my badge onto whatever top I decide to wear.
Looking forward to seeing SD there and any others of you who are going to go along. Anything around 5 will do me - last year did it in 5.15 and it was 6 days after 3.56 at Abingdon and I just bimbled around taking video, snaps, chowing down at the water stops etc etc....I guess I'm really saying I should extract my finger this year !and GET ON WITH IT !! I do think the weather is going to be a wee bit dodgy though.
