It’s the night before Comrades. The Ultimate Human Race. Bib #37312 is scared, but only a fool wouldn’t be scared, and both of us are. Excited, too, though. We’ve talked to various runners and listened to their advice: Mostly, start SLOW! They say that it is easy to get caught up in the excitement, to go out too fast. We must avoid that to finish.
They have “bail busses” which have very beautiful people on them, and the number one temptation we must avoid is getting on one. For one runner, it was the greatest regret of his life. Do not be tempted!
