I was really excited to go to the Expo today – I have been on so many occasions, but today was the first time that I was going to register!!!
My Folks arriving at the Expo …
My Folks with Zola Budd Pieterse
Alan and I at the big poster of him winning the 1978 Comrades, part of the History display at the Expo, loving taken care of by Barry Varty
My Race Number
My Goodie bag and its contents (I got a white bag filled with extra stuff because I am running for charity – I got a travel mug, amabeadibeadi beads, a Starfish neck-warmer, a whole tub of Arnica gel, shampoo samples, a zippered gym towel, a couple of supplement samples, deodorant, shower gel, a tub of vaseline and the usual brochures)
This is what was in Alan’s bag, most notably missing the tub of Arnica Gel, travel mug, shampoo and the Amabeadibeadi/Starfish beads and neck warmer
The Official Comrades T-Shirt – not to be worn before the race!!
I really enjoyed the two hours that I spent there and am looking forward to going again on Saturday.
