I'm leaving in a couple days and might not be online until I return on May 30th.
My much anticipated race begins at 5:30 a.m. (South Africa timezone) on Sunday, May 24th.
For those interested in tracking my progress during the race via text message, send a text message to 38132 with my race number (45612) as the message. You'll be sent a series of I-don't-know-how-many texts as I pass through 89 kilometers of timing stations on my way to the finish. [ EDIT: I just found out these texts will cost a little over $1 on top of any texting plan you might have with your wireless provider. So it's probably not worth it. Oh well. ]
And when I get close to the finish you can see finish-line video at www.comrades.com.
I'm going to keep running all the way to South Africa.
