Hope all goes well for you - as planned I shall wave to everyone as you go past my road about 300mtrs from the start!!

Are you staying overnight or for the weekend?
Could do coffee on Sunday morning - Cavendish Square perhaps

Hi!

I truly don't expect to finish in three hours, but I'll try like crazy and who knows? Is it as difficult as I am making it out to be in my mind?

For once I have been very lucky to have someone to something I love with. I have a friend I run (haha, more like walk with some running thrown in) with most weekends which really makes it a lot more fun.

Unfortunately I live in Pretoria, otherwise I would love to jog with you! I always feel like a loner because I don't belong to a book club or a knitting club and it seems the world has legions of people waiting to do crap with them.

Are you enjoying the Claremont VA? I joined run/walk, but it got really boring so I stopped going. Will give it another go after the 2 oceans.

hello

I'm also doing the half, did it last year as well, and just made the 3hr mark :)
Im prob just as unfit as I was then, but i'll give it a good go.
Are you training with anyone? I stay in claremont, so I have no one here to train with, I belong to the c/mont VA if you would like to jog together.
hugs, Ann

Anyone else doing the two oceans next week?

I'm doing the half marathon and although I am still kinda looking forward to it, I don't really have much hope of finishing in three hours! (By the way I want to strangle the next person who nonchalantly says 'Of course you can do it in three hours, you can walk it in three hours'!!)

It'll be nice to know there are other sparkpeople there and if anyone else is also secretly afraid of being the slowest person there (hey someone has to be slowest, but please don't let it be me!! ;)
