2004 Comrades Marathon Up Run

(As A Spectator)

I didn't run this year.  Lack of training due to knee troubles has kept my weight up and my mileage down.  But I traveled along with Tom to see our friends and try being a spectator, for a new experience.

Getting There

We flew to JFK and Les Brenner came and spent the day with us to get us off to a great start.  A couple of over-sized pints at the airport helped.  Then we boarded for Johannesburg, non-stop.  We arrived there about 1500 the next day and checked into the hotel across the drive, the Intercontinental Sun.  Our plane to Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport left early in the morning, and we had plans for a nice evening in Johannesburg with our friends.  Tiekie picked us up, took us way across town and we met Alex and Pauline and Uwe and Dianne for a terrific dinner.  Then Tiekie brought us back to our hotel.

Here is the view from our hotel room overlooking the Johannesburg runway:
