Comrades today

Good luck to cousins Gary and Matt (below) seen here in a pic at the Comrades Wall with their plaques halfway along the 87km route of the Comrades Marathon before the big day. The race started this morning at 5.30am and Llewellyn drove them down to the start. It's become a tradition for the two to come stay over at the guesthouse the night before the uprun, as we are just a few kilometres away from the start and unwind, enjoy a few beers and get their heads in order for the race. Both runners are going for a silver medal today which would be an incredible achievement only obtained by the top 450 or so runners out of a field of 17 000 - coming in in less than 7 1/2 hours to qualify.
