I'm running 1/2 of the Pub 2 Pub tomorrow from Moss Vale to Kangaroo Valley (50km)
I am really looking forward to the test of mind and spirit,
I know i can do it.
Weather 30C predicted hoping to get back to a epsom salt bath ASAP after getting home and soaking for at least 30minutes if time allows it! We are having dinner with friends at a child friendly 5:30 so i may need to rush.

Just went out and bought some gels and coke Girls at the counter of rebel tell me the flavour is yuck so i bought all 3 varieties of the gels just in case.Now i just want to pack my bags so i can be ready when MC picks me up at 6:40am.

Got to bed at 8:30pm last night slept well till 12:30 then couldn't grt back to sleep til 2:30am and got up at 6:30 so it was still 8hours i just had my mind on running.

Nervous and excited i will sign out now.

Good luck tomorrow, I have been reading about it on CR and sounds like a great event.

Is this your biggest event?? if so I would highly recommend booking in for a sports massage a day or two after, it will certainly speed the recovery up.

Enjoy look forward to reading all about it.

Good luck tomorrow, or today. I am not sure what time it is right now where you live, but you will probably be waking up soon. Look forward to hearing the details.

Are you doing the downhill half?

Good luck R2B! Some lovely country up there.

Hi R2B. Hope you had a great run. It is so scenic through the Southern Highlands, hopefully you would have had lots of nice views to take your mind off any pain. It was definately hot on the weekend, hope you managed to stay hydrated.

Cant wait to hear the report.

The Highlands?

Hope you had a good run R2B.

Be interested to hear what you have to say about the different gels and flavours. i absolutely love the vanilla one. after years of trying citrus and others this is the only one I can eat in the heat and when I am in that bad space during the middle or a long run.
