Two Oceans Ultra Marathon – Part 5 Race Day

As expected, I didn't sleep all that well on Friday night. But I am quite accustomed to not sleeping the night before a race and try to make sure I have some extra rest hours in the bank the couple of days leading up to race day. We all started to congregate in the living room area of the guest house by 4:45. Our wonderful guest house proprietors, Tonia and Paul had the coffee on and pre bagged breakfast to go ready for everyone. Love those guys.

Two Oceans Ultra Marathon – Part 4

Had a pretty good in flight lunch of tortellini . At least I guess it was lunch. Then settled in and watched Lincoln on my little monitor. Good flick. Really liked it for sure. Also finished another couple of chapters of Dean Karnazes' book "run". Five hours in and I was still feeling great. Oh! Nicole Delma to the rescue with Oreos ! Thanks Cole. It's funny because all the shades are drawn so it feels like the middle of the night. In reality it is 4:30 est but 10:30 Cape Town time. But I figured it was happy hour somewhere and declared it time for a beer.
