SD - sorry.

Alas I won't be at WT as being such a doofus, I assumed it would be good to enter on the day but not so, it is full up !! I have a local 15 miler now planned......

I think spending Saturday chilling will be the order of the day and I'd forgotten about parkrun oh and a lovely breakfast.

Erm....ignore part of my last post...Winter Tanners is NOT cancelled this year. I looked at the wrong year - it was cancelled LAST year due to snow. Phew. Such a doofus.

Windsor A - lol...that's true altho it will be dark. A lie in sounds so much better...and sensible.

SD - I was going to Winters Tanner but I see it's been cancelled !! Blooming weather.

Very interesting that some of you 'old hands' still do the bus tour. Last year was my first Comrades and am going back for the B2B fingers, legs and everything crossed. I did the bus tour last year but am now wondering if I should do it again this year ?  I arrive in Durban on the Friday so it would have to be a Saturday tour. Is it a good thing to do ?? Can we book it at the Expo on Friday for the Saturday ?? Thanks.

Windsor Andy, SD and BI - thank you so much.

BI - I have cut and pasted your write up for future mulling over. All that info is just invaluable to a newbie Downer like me. Thanks guys.

Thanks SD and everyone else...and yes...I did realise the Down is the reverse of the up but having only done the up once it's a challenge to remember. Stuff like what to wear, weather, lighting etc etc is invaluble information.

...oh and I also have dodgy calfs / achilles and am staying well away from flat long distance road runs for now.

Just catching up and good to see this is now picking up.

Carmen - the sizes of the vests were kind of generous. I tried on a small (me a size 10 / 12) but it was too flappy under the arms. It was one David Marsh had at the hotel - last one - so as I had not packed my sewing machine I gave it a miss.

Will get one for this year tho as the vest wearers were getting loads of shout outs.

The T was fine for a small and nice and long.  I wore the T on the flight out and also for the park run on the saturday, as did quite a few others.

I am going for my B2B and therefore have not done the down...so come on...all you 'Downers' - can you please give us some Down Newbies some juicy info ?? How does it feel to do 2 miles extra ?? When does it start to go down as still a fair old amount of Ups from what i can see !! Lots of detail / info please.
