2013 Comrades Results (belated)


Hi Bombers

This morning I was chatting to a friend, Jason, at work and I started thinking about the Bombers. Jason is wanting to run Two Oceans next year. He is in reasonable condition, but hasn’t been doing much running recently. He also would like to do Oceans in sandles and he’d like to run a fairly decent time. To Jason’s credit, he has been asking a lot of questions, and he is open to suggestions, and I think he will follow suggestions (time will tell, I guess). So in chatting, I started thinking that the only logical option for Jason is for him to come and train with the Bombers!! Where else is he going to find such a committed, decent, fun, together (Bridget’s words) bunch of runners? Whether you are trying to keep up with Silvia, or are getting back to it at the back (a feeling I am quite familiar with after Comrades – not even G-Batch wanted me), you won’t run alone – the group will always fetch you!

So when Jason does come one morning, ladies, please be kind to him!!

My thoughts were encouraged by the excellent set of results that were achieved by the group at Comrades – sorry I’ve taken so long to publish them, but they really do make some excellent reading. Gill, once again your program and the discipline installed in the mornings with the help of Leigh have yielded superb results. My time is correct! If you haven’t heard my story, I’ll tell it to you sometime, but suffice to say I was ‘klapped’ by the ‘wall’ at the top of Fields after 27ks and struggled home thereafter.

Well done to everyone who ran and made it – those were some tough conditions this year!!

Cheers
