Today is the first day back to reality, behind a computer screen, after a week of little sleep, lots of driving around and even a bit of running.

Off to Natal for a wedding...I wish I took my flipflops with me. The cool Cape Town weather was exchanged for hot and humid conditions.

My Facebook status update, the day before the Attakwas read something like this: “121km on a mountain bike tomorrow - what was I thinking when I signed up?” A very accurate response from a friend was: “Was that not a typo ‘what were you drinking?’” I was about to take on the Comrades Marathon...
