The talk of the L50 has me tempted.... i've contacted the organisers to volunteer on this years event (the volunteer rosta is currently full, but if anyone drops out they will let me know)
jar - glad things are looking positive
Patricia - it might be different for someone like yourself churning out a much higher mile rate than me - I tend to exist on fluids mostly - mainly coke, hmm coke, I don't drink it on any other day than Comrades, nectar for the engines! Water comes second, and then later in the day I recall taking a few orange segments, less banana pieces, fewer salty potatoes (that I mainly spat out after salt absorption), a few crackers that were annoyingly dry and lung threatening as I almost breathed in their dust and then a couple of massively frustrating small pieces of chocolate which were almost impossible to break out of their shrink wrapping. In all I probably ate less than side plate full of solids over the whole run.
I have been looking up temperatures and found stats that say 31st May 2015 hit 25C/77F and 29th May 2016 hit 24C/75F:-
2015 - 25C/77F - Durban, Pietermaritzburg, Hillcrest, Pinetown2016 - 24C/75F - Durban, Pietermaritzburg, Hillcrest, Pinetown
It was nice chatting Patricia - i do enjoy talking if both are up for it and if there's someone I know then all the better. Often a chat and some high-fives with supporters helps break you out of a long period of introspection.
CMA have got my pictures today, I patiently await a verdict.
Good luck JAR
