Hi Garth. Sorry to hear of your woes. I will certainly look out for you. I'll be at our club pasta party on the 26th as well if you are going to be there.
I'm sitting on 2600km if running in 2015. I've run plenty route testers. I've bagged a sub 75 half without tapering. Basically, I couldn't feel more prepared for this. Now just to do one more week of training, not get sick and hope for cooler weather than 2 years ago!
Travel safe all, as you embark on the journey over here. Don't worry about anything you may have seen in the media regarding xenophobia. It has all blown over and all it's done is put the police on their toes more than normal, which is a good thing.
