And finally, what you’ve all been waiting for (sorry it took so long, but we were all in recovery!)…
Alfred’s reportback on his 14th Comrades Marathon, fueled for the first time by Banting! Alf shares his experiences, both on the road and off, and tells us about some of the more whimsical moments in his journey.
We also finally satisfy our curiosity about what it feels like to complete a test of the limits of human endurance, on a Low Carb/High Fat diet. (Spoiler alert: it feels good!)
So there you have it: 2015’s Comrades journey comes to an end. Congratulations on a great run, Alfred! See you on the road next year…

Tomorrow Alfred will run his 14th Comrades Marathon. It’s been an incredible journey for him – he’s overcome the struggle of injury, the challenges of adjusting to a new diet, lost 9 kilograms and run over 500km in the last two months.
And track him tomorrow by SMS’ing his race number 51183 to 39174 (R20 for nine SMS’s) or watch out for posts here of his times along the route.
Why do these athletes run this race year after year? Don’t they get bored? Isn’t it sore? What brings them back?
This morning we went to Alfred’s club’s Comrades breakfast and were lucky enough to experience a bit of why this epic event is so much more than a race!
