Rude messages

Shoo so I even joined the Runners World blog thing today - www.runnersworld.co.za. Cyberspace AND Comrades here I come. Mind you I tried to post something and it gave a rude message back so still have to work it all out. (It is hard to believe I am married to a man who knows cyberspace like his Stump Jumper mountain bike).
Had a good run this morning - was quite tired from lots of running on the weekend. The morning was beautiful and for once my lower back was not sore at all when I climbed out of bed. Could this be the start of a pain free lower back? Wow I haven't been pain free in about 5 years!

Hiya. I am a newbie to this form of communication. I seem to keep my cyberspace travels to a minimum.

I aim to run Comrades Marathon next year - 30 may 2010 and this huge event warrants some documenting and sharing.
I have been a very unsteady runner for the last 10 years or so and stopped and started and run varying distances over the years. The longest being a marathon and it was a great one - the London Marathon. This year has been more steady training-wise and I decided a good 40th birthday pressie to me was to run Comrades and the Rhodes Ultra Marathon. In fact Rhodes was the original goal but I don't know if I will get in so the reward for all the training will at least be Comrades and at most be both races.
So if you are interested then read on to all posts to come - if not - well then dont.
Ciao for now
