Cradle of Humankind race
Anyone doing the Cradle of Humankind race  tomorrow?

I am running the 32km as a training run.
I am going with the Harriers running club with a bus to the race and we are leaving early 3:20 to go to the race.  

I know Kenjohn has done it before and mentioned that Traffic getting into the venue is a nightmare.

We leaving only at round about 14:00 so traffic by that time should not be such a hassle I hope.
Spectator spots
Hi all.
This is now a question from the ye of a spectator.
My wife and almost a year (by then) son along with another wife and son in the car, will be supporting.
We really don't know the area at all.
My thinking is they will drop us and make it to a spot along the road (30-40k ish).
Support both of us running and move to a spot (60k ish)
Hopefully support us again and go to the finish

Cheating runners
NO NO not cheating on their spouses...

Why would one have someone run a qualifier for you or cheat at a race to have a better seeding ?

At the end of the day you're just cheating yourself.

Hey hey it's Friday
Another weekend is upon us ... again.

I'm doing the Loskop 21km Wild Challenge tomorrow.

Probably, a short recovery type run on Sunday and then spending the day with family.
Who's been training
Ran 10km last night and it's been a while since I did that 10km in an hour.
I have been struggling getting back to form and yesterday run was easy and managed to run it withn an hour.

After the run tough I went and hurt my knee, where I went to go fetch my son and it was dark and I did not see the puddle of mud and the next thing I slipped but my left leg got stuck and hurt my knee.
This morning it is a bit sore when walking.

Will see this afternoon how it feels when I run.
