Calling all Comrades Novices

Novices, Noobs, Newbies, First-timers – whatever you want to call yourselves, I’m speaking to YOU!!

Over the past few weeks I’ve had some correspondence from people who are planning on making Comrades 2010 their first attenmpt at the Ultimate Human Race and to tell you the truth I’m flattered that there are some of you who are looking for any advice or just want to muffle those little voices which are saying “You’re crazy, you can’t do this”  – by reading my musings…

In light of this I’ve decided to create another section here on Reluctant Runner for those of you who are planning on doing the Comrades for the first time in 2010 – it will be called First-Timers (I know, so totally original), where I will be writing posts dedicated to the first-time runners of this amazing race.

So, if you have anything you’d like to contribue, questions about the race or if you just want a place to vent or if you need some motivation then feel free to do so here!!!

    I’d like to see a post detailing the food and drink available at the aid stations. I need to know what kind of stuff I have to practice eating so I can get it down on race day.
