Breaking news on the run:
- Ryan Hall is meant to be running the race. Not sure how true that is. We love Americans coming to try out our little South African race.
- I will be in a running bus comprising of my brother, Alby, and my mates Keith & Steven Buhr. At this stage it looks as though Steven will be given the NO GO by the doctor which is a big pity.
- I am gunning for a 8h58m Bill Rowan marathon. Last year I blew up at 39k's and finished on a crawl of 10h52m. Lots of pain there. I reckon I can hold until 65k's before things get sticky.
- They have added 110 metres to the race. It is now 89.28 kilometres. Not sure why that is, but I certainly didn't train for that!!
