  • Kitebeast, are those "trail" laps? If so Debra will be most impressed; she is an aficionado of such events

  • Great stuff SS - my son sometimes "acquires" my running tops; Brisbane Marathon, Tokyo Olympics 1964 (I hasten to assure you I am not that old, it was purchased in London in 2012 at the "nostalgia" store), and now Comrades 2018 Are you sure Mr SS i…

  • Welcome kitebeast - sorry you have arrived when I am kicking off big-style with the "Comrades Board" - we will get this sorted - how is your training going have you got any events you will run prior to Comrades? Let us know and we will add them to …

  • The distribution I referred to above have just been sent this reply from me; Querty, as I will call him, passed the test through IAAF affiliation, so he was of no assistance really.... Hi Qwerty, Thank you for the swift reply. I can see this is…

  • Thanks for all the concern folks, I am in an e-mail chain currently with several people, sparked off by David Ross including some bloke called Rowyn, where a runner is insisting he has submitted a letter to Jared, also a cc, and been accepted to run…

  • SS you are a soothing voice of sanity against my irked and inflamed interior thank you Today I have 3 unopened e-mails in my inbox that I am staring at from various sources all Comrades related, my hand keeps hovering over them, but I can tell fro…

  • Short version (ha ha) - Love you guys and gals to pieces - quite right about the camaraderie most precious commodity ever - Kudos - don't care for it - I run stuff because I want to - I know I am a drama queen and a big attention seeker and in-race…

  • Well that was strange - I typed a lengthy reply in - as usual - and noticed a typo - so edited it to fix it and the whole post evaporated - can't be bothered retyping all that right now.

  • Thanks for the context SD, I really appreciate your views. So I can substitute ASA for IAAF, feelings remain the same, I recall Mr Ross' info too that the same applies to all races in SA, so I am thankful I have already run Cape Town and 2O (althoug…

  • The drama queen in me is thinking... This would be my third up run and I'm wondering about whether I really want to do this again. I only ever turned up to see if I could achieve the goal, and it has been an incredible journey, but I might have rea…

  • It is clear to me that it would be clearly impossible to create a longer sentence containing any more repetitions of the word clear than you have just clearly written Max

  • You lucky "person" Wardi, very envious, thanks for the update - I can suffer varying degrees of destruction when it is hot and wet, totally avoided getting extra wetness on me at last year's VLM and even then ended up with a very good red cross impr…

  • McH, sounds like bath salts, where is that? Great work to move up a pen What a run Debra even more so off the reduced training you have been able to put in, but maybe that enforced "taper" o-o I said taipir contributed to the result

  • Credit to Mr Ross, he has responded and confirmed the current situation as described, so I am now into a waiting game for Comrades to declare how non-IAAF affiliated international runners will be treated, lets hope its not by sending them down a chu…

  • Strava will look a bit empty for me lately SS as my watch isn't charging properly (yes, that's a good one 1owrez, they know you don't have a dog so you can't say it ate it). I am seeing some wonderful mileage from you; brilliant seeing you build to …

  • I have tried to resolve this Debra, contacted EA as originally advised by David Ross assuring me that EA will provide a letter confirming I am not affiliated but they will not prevent me from running. The response was a counter quote from David Ross…

  • Some of you out there know how stubborn I can get, and I'm digging in for warfare here. I'm not joining a club, I'm not affiliating myself with any bodies, except Sigourney Weaver's. At the moment it looks like I'm going to have a nice weekend sitti…

  • Sounds like you are on the mend Portlanders, some things do take a while to settle completely, the 5k walk seems like a good test, you need to keep looking at that hobble and tightness, hopefully it will ease away to nothing over the next few days.

  • I'm sure this is a classic case of Dissociative Identity Disorder and everything is perfectly fine. I seem to recall Charles Bronson fixed Emmet some time ago too.

  • Wardi - I probably do the same thinking about this - I'll have a bottle of sports drink with me on the way to the start, but that is for drinking during the earlier part of the run, these days it gets me to half way at least, so I am saving that and…

  • Hi portlanders, there is no need to do anything special from my point of view; have you noticed on your longer runs any need to pee? I generally run marathons with zero stops, your body will tend to use the water you drink to cool you pushing it out…

  • Guys, if you want I can eradicate J&Rs daftness, including your comments, and this one I am typing now, so it will be as if the comment was never made, alternatively we can leave it here as a warning to others. J&R also boast they bargained …

  • HS2 - so happy for you - what an achievement - I never realized you got the six star at your final major on the day! Portlanders; classic stuff... and great self-diagnosis... you need to go carefully introducing additional cross-training activities…

  • Have you got a post-run stretching regime Portlanders? Sounds like you might simply have a lactic build up in your quad (not sure if I am using the right term there) it is good practice to do something like this after a run
    in VLM 2019 Comment by 1owrez March 5
  • Front (quad) or back (ham etc) Portlanders? Any pain when you apply pressure anywhere? I go for a sports leg massage once in a while which can really help keep you road worthy; I never used to do this; terrified of anyone "touching me" but once ove…

  • I am ashamed to admit that post finish I will do a swift change of clothes in the park off from the bag pickup point and employ a previously prepared flannel for a quick wipe down and a can of deodorant as I hasten to Euston and my train home . In…

  • Max, I love the steak and chips bit Terry; will you be out supporting Debra and I at Boston? Looking forward to when we can run marathons with you again, it was brilliant to finally catch up with you in the finishing chute with Running Rodent at L…
